Cook What You Got - Carrots
Carrots make an appearance in every kind of food, from breakfast muffins to dessert and everything in between. Here's how to buy, store and cook this popular root veggie. When ready to use, scrub carrots under cool running water with a vegetable brush. Not all carrots need to be peeled. In fact, many nutrients are in or just below the skin. If the carrots are young and fresh, simply scrub, then trim at each end. If the carrots are not at their freshest, peel with a vegetable peeler, then trim each end.
