Carrots are a root vegetable that taste crunchy when eaten raw, and a sweeter flavor when cooked.
When selecting carrots look for a larger size and a deeper color. Pay attention to the leaves, make sure they are fresh and green. Try to avoid cracks and splits in the body as well. Carrots can be stored for up a month in the fridge.
Carrots are great for snacking with a little ranch. They are also great sauteed or as an addition to steak. If you mix a little brown sugar and butter you can give them a sweet glaze. You can also use them to make carrot cake!
