How to Blanch the Asparagus

To blanch fresh asparagus, add the spears to a large pot of boiling water. Cook, uncovered, 2 to 3 min. or until bright green in colour. Drain asparagus, then immediately plunge into bowl of ice water to stop the cooking. When completely cool, drain and pat dry.


If potatoes are large, cut them into quarters before cooking as directed.
