tips for cooking with carrots
When buying carrots, look for ones that still have the green tops on them. Those are the freshest. The skin should be fairly smooth, not rough or dried out. To store them, place them in the coldest part of your refrigerator (they'll last up to two weeks). The most nutritious way to prepare a carrot is to scrub it, not peel it, then cook for 3-5 minutes. The cooking process releases the beta carotene making it easier for your body to absorb.
