Every refrigerator should have a bunch of crisp carrots stored and ready to enhance the flavors of soups, sauces, salads and desserts. Fresh, spring carrots have a sweet delicate flavor that is perfect for snacking. As carrots age, the color deepens which indicates an increase in vitamin A.
Selection and Storage:
Bright orange carrots with a smooth surface are best. They should be firm and medium sized. Store in plastic bags in the refrigerator.
Preparation and Cooking:
Wash carrots before use. Most carrots need to be peeled. Carrots can be grilled, boiled, steamed, baked or stir-fried. Carrots are a favorite party tray vegetable, because they are great for dipping and bring a crunch.
