A SPEAR THROUGH THE HEART...
So I asked Bruce Zinkle of Marshview Farm what was so special about being snapped versus being cut. He told me that snapping breaks the asparagus spear at the point where it becomes tough, so each spear brought to Market is pristine and tender from top to bottom; ready to steam or grill or lightly saute to perfection.
