Asparagus is available in thick and thin varieties. The thicker variety is best used for soups etc where it is blanched and then pureed. The thin varieties are usually more tender and used for stir-fry preparations or used in salads etc. It is also available canned (best for soups or purees) and frozen (comparable to fresh).

Culinary Uses
