About: Carrots

Carrots are just as good as a supporting character as the lead. Their sweetness and depth enhance any soup or sauce. Their crunch enlivens salads, pickles and stir fries.  They star in curries, spreads and purees and any preparation in which they are roasted. They grow for much of the year and keep well for the rest.

 

Carrots from the CSA or market do not need to be peeled but just give them a good scrub. The skin is tender and full of nutrients. Carrots are rich in antioxidants and minerals.
