Carrots, Orange - Organic - Local - 1 bunch

$6.00

Carrots, Orange - Organic - Local - 1 bunch* with greens. 

Fresh carrots should be firm and crisp, with smooth and unblemished skin. The bright orange colour is an indication of high carotene content, which has antioxidant properties and protects the body against oxidative damage. Carrots have an earthy, sweet flavour. 

 

Use: can be eaten raw, used in salads, and as relishes, served as cooked or roasted vegetables, glazed, and used in stews and soups, as well as in some desserts. Carrot greens are just as edible as carrots themselves. Use them in sauces, pesto, toss and add to stews.

Storage: keep in refrigerator or root cellar for 1 to 3 months at about 4.4C temperature. Blanched carrots will keep in the freezer for up to 6 months. Cut off carrot greens, wrap them in a damp paper towel and keep them in the fridge. Use them quickly, otherwise, they will wilt and turn bad in less than a week.
