At roughly half the price of our bunched carrots, these juicing carrots are a bargain! They are still locally grown, free from chemicals, and delivered to your door.
These carrots are too large, too small, or too gnarly to fit in bunches. But they are perfect for juicing or cooking or whatever your heart desires.
When the weather turns cold in late fall and winter, carrots become sweeter and increase in nutrient value.
Place roots in the coldest area of the refrigerator in a perforated bag to keep them crisp.
Cooking carrots actually increases the availability of antioxidants. Quick steam carrots by bringing water to a boil in a vegetable steamer, slice carrots, and steam for approximately 5 minutes being careful not to overcook. If carrots are organically grown, maintain maximum nutritional benefits by not peeling carrots but rather lightly scrub carrots in running water before cooking.
All produce is cleaned and raw for those who want to prepare their own salads. These are not ready-to-eat. We recommend rinsing your produce before eating.
