How do I store fresh, uncooked Asparagus in the refrigerator?

I have re-discovered microwaved fresh asparagus. I have 4 lbs in 2 plastic bags from Sams Club. As I recall, I've seen these stored vertically upright in a glass of water, is that so? Why? Should I do it? How long will these bags of asparagus last in fridge?

No. Anything in your fridge that was in water in the store you should store unwatered.

r1 is wrong.

Asparagus are like flower stems - they need a lot of water to stay fresh and keep from drying out. If you cut off the bottoms when you get home and place them in a narrow glass of water they will continue to absorb the water and stay fresher longer, just like a vase of flowers. It'd be even better of you could peel the stems (about halfway up) as well as cutting off the bottoms (just an inch or so) because they will be more tender when you cook them.

But not in the refrigerator R4.

I find it fascinating that you would post such a question here when you could just Google search "how to store asparagus" and be done with it. Are you that attached to Datalounge?

I love creamed asparagus on toast. When the spears are cheap I buy a bunch, steam and put in cream sauce. Then I freeze in plastic bags so I can have creamed asparagus anytime and in only a few minutes.
