Week 8: Carrots

Carrots, carrots, carrots

This week we’re trying a favorite snack of Brandon’s: carrots.  We bought some fun, multi-colored organic ones at the market, but most of our recipes call for your standard orange carrot.

From WikipediaCarrots can be eaten in a variety of ways. Only 3% of the β-carotene in raw carrots is released during digestion: this can be improved to 39% by pulping, cooking and adding cooking oil. Alternatively they may be chopped and boiled, fried or steamed, and cooked in soups and stews, as well as baby and pet foods. A well known dish is carrots julienne. The greens are edible as a leaf vegetable, but are rarely eaten by humans. 

 

What's up, Doc?
