Carrots, Organic (1lb)
Carrots are hardy vegetables that will keep longer than many others if stored properly. The trick to preserving the freshness of carrot roots is to minimize the amount of moisture they lose. To do this, make sure to store them in the coolest part of the refrigerator in a plastic bag or wrapped in a paper towel, which will reduce the amount of condensation that is able to form. They should be able to keep fresh for two weeks or more if stored properly.
Wash carrot roots and gently scrub them with a vegetable brush right before eating. Unless the carrots are old, thick or not grown organically, it is not necessary to peel them.
- Try combing shredded carrots, beets and apples, and eat as a salad.
- Steaming carrots retains flavor and vital nutrients. Cut 1/4 in thick and steam for 5 minutes for optimal nutrition and taste.
- For quick, nutritious soup that can be served hot or cold, purée boiled carrots and potatoes in a blender or food processor, and add herbs and spices to taste.
They are an excellent source of vitamins and minerals especially vitamin A. 1/2 cup of carrots contains 266% of the Daily Value of Vitamin A and only 27 calories- so eat up!
