Best Answer

For blanching asparagus, you can use the whole spears or cut into pieces. Using a saucepan large enough for your asparagus, bring enough water to cover the asparagus to a rolling boil. While waiting for your water to boil, prepare a large enough bowl of ice water. Simply use enough tap water to cover the asparagus when you're ready and add plenty of ice to keep it cold until your water is boiling rapidly. Add the asparagus to the boiling water and boil until it turns bright green, about 2 to 5 minutes depending on the size of the asparagus. As soon as the asparagus turns bright green, transfer it from the boiling water into the ice water. You are now ready to use your asparagus as planned, whether it is for freezing, serving, or using in a recipe.
