can you freeze asparagus

Report as

You can freeze asparagus but it comes with mixed results. The best method is to place the asparagus in a single layer on a baking sheet until frozen. Then transfer asparagus to freezer bags. There is a chance the asparagus will become mushy when cooked.

Asparagus can be frozen but not for very long. When stored for a long time, it loses a bit of flavor and tastes bland. You can still use it for making stocks and stews.

You can freeze asparagus, but it's texture will get very mushy. Previously frozen asparagus will be most suited to creamed asparagus dishes.

Asparagus is not a vegetable that freezes well. The freezing process penetrates the cells of the asparagus. When it is taken out of the freezer and attempted to cook, it tends to turn to mush.

It is important to wash young and tender asparagus spears as well as to cut them into even shapes before you blanch them. For more on how to freeze asparagus, visit http://www.uga.edu/nchfp/how/freeze/asparagus.html.

Yes, asparagus can be frozen. It freezes rather well actually. You can freeze asparagus for up to 6 months if is is raw. If it is cooked, you only want to leave it frozen for about 30 days.
