    Facts about Carrots

    How to Choose:

    Pick carrots with intensely deep hues, as these will be the freshest. Avoid carrots with faded pigments or hairy roots – both indicators that they’re past their prime. Also pass up any carrots with splits or cracks.

    Storing Wisdom:

    Cut off the greens. The first step to successfully storing carrots is to cut off the greens, as they sap nutrients from the roots. Then store carrots in a lid-covered container filled with water to keep them crisp until you cook. 

    Don't toss those tops!

    According to Epicurious, carrot tops aren’t actually poisonous, as is widely believed. Instead of tossing them, they suggest using them in a pesto or as a garnish for sweet soups – their bitterness will add a nice contrast. Or don’t eat them at all, and use their lush green stems as a flower arrangement filler.
