Cooking with Giò – Cleaning asparagus

risotto di asparagi Did you know that once you’ve rinsed fresh asparagus, if you then throw it in a sink full of water with a little salt, any remaining sediment will filter into the water and to the bottom of the sink? Ergo, out of the asparagus.

I’m sure all the super cooks among you are already aware of this. I found it fascinatingand the resulting risotto was buonissimo, as always (I’m not complementing myself, by the way; but when I get really good at making risotto, vi faccio sapere, I’ll be sure and let you know).
