Here’s how to cut asparagus: trim off the ends where the stalk turns from white to green! Follow this easy method.


  • 1 pound asparagus


  1. Line up the asparagus spears on a cutting board. 
  2. Grab half of the stalks with your non-cutting hand. Using a large chef’s knife, slice off the bottom tough parts of the stalks just where the color turns from white to green. 
  3. Repeat with the other half of the stalks.
