CARROTS

Storage

Remove carrot greens as soon as possible to keep roots crisp.  Store carrots in a container of water in the fridge.

Preparation

Carrots can be eaten raw or cooked.  The greens as also edible and can be used in recipes such as Carrot Top Pesto.  Dark purple carrots will bleed colour during cooking, so you may want to cook separately to keep the other vegetables from turning purple.

PARIS MARKET CARROTS

An heirloom mini carrot variety that originates from France.  The teeny, ball-shaped carrots are exceptionally sweet, but do not keep as well as some other carrot varieties.  The greens were removed immediately after picking to prevent moisture loss from the root.
