Asparagus in oil: how to make them

  1. First, wash the asparagus thoroughly under running water, then remove the final part of the stem, which is too woody to be eaten.
  2. Fill one pot with water and vinegar and as soon as it reaches the boil, dip the asparagus. Cook them for about ten minutes, considering that they will have to remain al dente.
  3. Then drain them with a slotted spoon and spread them out on a clean tea towel.
  4. Cut them into chunks of the size you prefer and transfer them to sterilized glass jars. You can if you like add flavourings such as minced garlic, red pepper or parsley.
  5. Cover with oil and close, keeping the jars in sight for a day. After this period of time, top up with oil if necessary.
