Stir-Fried Asparagus

Asparagus is best cooked the day it's purchased, but it can be kept in the refrigerator for up to five days in one of the following ways: Wrap the bottoms of the stalks in a damp paper towel, place in a paper bag, and store them in a crisper. Or stand the bundled stalks in a bowl with about an inch of water.
