Carrots Base Text Border

Storage: Like other root vegetables, the greens should be cut off the roots before storing to minimize desiccation of the roots. Carrot greens are edible but can be fibrous, so should be chopped or pureed. Both roots and greens should be stored dry in bags that preserve moisture. Carrots keep several weeks; carrot greens about a week.

Uses: Roasting carrots brings out their earthy sweetness. Carrots pair well with curry spices, ginger and tomatoes. Onions, carrots and celery (or celeriac) make a great base for many dishes (see Mirepoix).
