Did you know that one of carrots’ defense mechanisms in the cold is to concentrate their sugars so that they won’t freeze? Yep! Plants are AMAZING!!
So, though the recent freezing temps have created quite a challenge in the garden, killed a lot of veggies, and burned our carrot greens … our carrot roots are sweet sweet sweet!! (Short video lesson about wintertime carrots here)
Most of this week’s carrots range in color from a creamy beige to bright orange, and some bunches may contain some pink and purple varieties as well. Other bunches may be solid orange, depending on which patches are harvested this week.
Our favorite ways to eat these carrots are sliced on salads or roasted whole with a bit of sea salt. They’re also great dip dippers and are yummy sautéed with OJ for a sweet side dish. The greens are edible and are a nice addition to salads, pesto, soups, and stocks. Check out the links below for more carrot ideas!
