Food quiz


Which of the following is NOT true of asparagus?

Yes, you can enjoy asparagus year-round, but it is the freshest and tastiest in spring. One stalk of asparagus contains just 4 calories—the same as one small jelly bean—and delivers healthy doses of folate, potassium and fiber. If you’re not going to eat your asparagus within a day or two, stand it upright in a glass of water to keep it hydrated.
