Carrots should be stored at 35 degrees F.
Large or older carrots can have a slightly bitter taste. To avoid this, slice lengthwise and remove the core.
To store carrots, cut the tops off and place them in a plastic bag in the vegetable crisper in your refrigerator.
Avoid carrots with green tops, they will be bitter. The green color is caused by sunlight and is usually the result of heavy rain washing the soil away.
A medium bunch of carrots = 1 pound
One large carrot, shredded, = 1 cup
Carry raw carrots in a sack lunch, to your next picnic, or in the car when you are on the go. There are many different ways that you can eat raw carrots, and the choices are almost endless. They can be eaten whole, in sticks, cut into rounds, and chopped or shredded in salads. Kids love the mild taste of carrots!
