Carrots (2 lb)

Storage
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.
Preparation
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.  

Cooking Ideas


  • 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.

Nutritional Information
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!

Carrot and Craisin Salad


Craisins sounded like a more catchy title than sweetened dried cranberries (which is what they are).
Ingredients

  • 1 pound carrots

  • 1 cup water 

  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt 

  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

  • 1/8 teaspoon red-pepper flakes (optional)

  • 1/3 cup dried cranberries or other dried fruit like raisins, apricots, cherries or blueberries 

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


Directions
1. Peel and coarsely grate 1 pound carrots (to yield 4 to 5 cups).
2. In a large skillet over high heat, bring 1 cup water, 2 tablespoons white vinegar, 1 teaspoon coarse salt, 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin, 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper, and 1/8 teaspoon red-pepper flakes to a boil.
3. Add carrots and 1/3 cup craisins; toss to coat. Reduce heat to medium; cover, and cook until carrots are crisp tender, tossing occasionally for 8 to 10 minutes.
4. Mix in 1 tablespoon olive oil. Transfer to a covered container and chill until ready to serve.



Veggie "Rainbow" Meatloaf


This is one of those sneaky ways to get kids (or adults) to eat their veggies.

2. Season with salt and pepper and cook until the vegetables are almost soft, about 5 minutes. Set aside to cool.

4. On a foil lined baking sheet, place the meat and form into a loaf.
