Freezing leftover asparagus?

DanaB | Jun 4, 200906:18 PM     11

Hi All,

So, I was tempted at the market today by local fresh asparagus -- unfortunately it was pre-bundled, and so had to buy over a pound. It was delicious steamed for dinner tonight, but since I'm going out of town for the weekend tomorrow, I cooked it all, figuring it wouldn't keep over the weekend raw. I ate a lot of it, but still have some left. Was wondering if it would totally destroy it if I froze it, with the thought of using it in cream of asparagus soup or something later on. I could use some in an omlette tomorrow before I go, but I don't think I'll be able to eat it all up before I go. Any thought?

Thanks!

Dana
