Prepping & Storing Carrot Tops

When you are lucky enough to get freshly harvested carrots, with carrot tops still attached, use the greens as you would fresh parsley. 

 

As soon as you get them, cut away the tops, give them a rinse and shake them out or spin them in a colander. Loosely wrap them in a clean dish towel and store in your produce drawer. They’ll last even longer (and perhaps not be forgotten) if you store them in a food storage container that allows for air to circulate underneath.

They should do fine for several days until you think of something clever to do with them! 

What is this vegetable and what do I do with it?!

 

Sometimes at the farmer’s market or in a CSA box you may come across a vegetable you’ve never seen before. Or perhaps you know the name of a vegetable but you’ve never cooked with it and aren’t sure what to do with it. That’s where our Veggie Gallery comes in handy! CLICK HERE to visit the gallery.
