Toss the spears that you saved in the pot of boiling water, make sure you salt the water just a bit! Let the asparagus go for about 3-4 minutes, just enough to heat through, but keep that nice crunch!

Add the spears in the ice bath to shock and stop the cooking. This obviously stops the spears from cooking, but also keeps the bright green color.
