How do I freeze asparagus.?
My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.
Both air and moisture are detrimental to all food storage, both in your fresh food section or your freezer. Leftovers in your fresh food section should be discarded after 3 days. In the freezer section they can last months depending on the food product.
It is nice for temporary storage to use items like tupper ware, but you can not get all of the air out of the container. It is better to leave the food product in the original bowl or place in a container where you can cover with plastic wrap, pushing down and making contact with the food product, getting rid of the air.
Your refrigerator temperature settings are critical. The fresh food section should be between 35-40 degrees F. and your freezer -2 to +2 degrees F.
Ok, lets freeze the asparagus. With a paper towel soak the outside moisture from the asparagus. Wrap it in plastic wrap ensuring there is no air in your package.
Do not put anything in your freezer or fresh food section directly in front of the air vents to avoid blocking air flow.
