Carrots are versatile, familiar, and CSA members love our super fresh carrots!  This is an example where you can truly taste the difference, once you try these carrots you will not want to eat shaved baby carrots from a plastic bag again!  Carrots are enjoyed in a variety of formats, the juice is popular, they can be baked, carrot tops are even edible.  Together with onion and celery, carrots are one of the primary vegetables used in a mirepoix to make various broths, soups, and stews.  Carrots are very high in Vitamin A.


Storage

Remove tops, then store unwashed in a plastic or reusable produce bag in the refrigerator, carrots will last up to a month.


Preparation

Scrub carrots to remove any dirt,then shred, dice, or chop for recipes.  Our fresh, certified organic carrots don’t need to be peeled, but if you prefer you may peel. Carrots  can be chopped and boiled, fried or steamed, and cooked in soups and stews, as well as baby foods.
