Carrots that are farm fresh, and organically grown, are sweet and delicious! These roots are rich in beta-carotene, which is converted into vitamin A in the liver. Vitamin A is transformed in the retina, to rhodopsin, a purple pigment necessary for night vision. We normally just cut them up and eat them in slaw, but we also enjoy them roasted. While carrots are sweet enough for our taste buds, on occasion will have candied carrots or carrot muffins.. We have rocky fields, so don’t expect perfectly sized carrots in these bunches! Should you receive carrots with tops, you will need to remove them so your carrots keep in the refrigerator without going soft. Don’t throw your tops away, because here are reicpes that use the tops.
Sold in a bunch weighing 1.5 pounds. Bunches normally contain three to five carrots. Occasionally our carrots are sold without the tops.
