First, take one stalk of asparagus. Place the ends between your thumb and forefinger of each hand. Then bend until it breaks.The asparagus automatically breaks where the woody part ends and the fresh, juicy asparagus begins. So you don’t need to worry about breaking off too much or too little.
All the asparagus in the bunch will not break in the same place, so that is why laying them on a cutting board and cutting the ends off with a knife is not a good way to take off the ends. Breaking a single stalk of asparagus from a bunch can give you an idea of where each may break, so that is why I recommend breaking one asparagus stalk first.To speed up the process, I recommend taking three to four stalks of asparagus at a time. Hold them loosely and allow them to flex and break where they want to break.
