How to Trim Asparagus:

When preparing Asparagus Spears for the griddle it is important to cut off the ends that are tough. To figure out where to cut, gently bend the asparagus. Where the asparagus bends is the start of the tender part.

Then line the large piece of asparagus up on a cutting board and cut with a sharp knife. This allows you trim the tough part off the stem.
