Kashrut Instructions


DESCRIPTION: Asparagus contains beetles and thrips. Thrips are primarily found under the triangle scales and somewhat less frequently in the tips of the asparagus.


  1. Shave down the floret at the asparagus tip.
  2. Remove the triangle parts along the side of the asparagus. (A potato peeler is recommended.)
  3. Wash thoroughly.

When prepared in this manner, special inspection is not necessary.
