Did you know Carrots were originally eaten as a medicine!
When in season we source our carrots from local farms about 4 miles from us. This is one of the most versatile, reasonably priced and popular vegetables in the UK. Dirty carrots are longer lasting than pre-washed carrots with less handling the carrots can hold on to their nutrient content. Carrots straight from these farms with the dirt still on always taste best. You’ll notice that they smell better too.
Carrots being a root crop grown under the ground will keep for weeks with a little TLC. Simply wrap in several layers of damp newspaper and leave somewhere dark and cool, keeping the paper damp. They’ll stay firm and crisp.
