Freezing Asparagus

Each year there is a time between the first flush and last frenzied sales of asparagus when I find there is enough for me to set aside to freeze.  Why freeze asparagus?

I agree it is better fresh.  But asparagus is a magic tonic food for kidneys.  Each winter I take some frozen asparagus out of the freezer and make cream of asparagus soup. It is a real energy booster when we feel blah.

Freezing asparagus is easy. Rinse, chop, Drop into boiling water for a couple minutes to the point it becomes bright green.

Remove and move to sink.
