Both Good Asparagus
This direct color photograph print shows the advantage of selecting asparagus for durability as well as for size and flavor. One tin shows stalks which are whole and tempting-the other stalks which, during the process of cooking and canning, have broken and become messy. The unbroken asparagus costs no more to raise but commands twice as great a market price.
