    When selecting a carrot, ensure they are firm and vibrant in colour.  Avoid carrots that are excessively cracked, forked, limp or rubbery.

    To store Carrots effectively, control the moisture loss, this can be done by storing them in paper towels or plastic bags in the coolest part of the refrigerator.

    Carrots should also be stored away from apples, pears, potatoes and other fruits and vegetables that produce ethylene gas since it will cause them to become bitter.

    If you purchase carrot roots with attached green tops, the tops should be cut off before storing in the refrigerator since they will cause the carrots to wilt prematurely as they pull moisture from the roots.

    To clean carrots, wash carrot and gently scrub them with a course brush or sponge, if they are not organic then peel them just before eating or cooking.

    Carrots are delicious eaten raw or cooked. While heating can often damage some of the delicate phytonutrients in vegetables, the beta-carotene as found in carrots has been shown to be surprisingly heat-stable. In fact, carrots’ beta-carotene may become more bioavailable through well-timed steaming. Still, be careful not to overcook carrots if you want to your carrots to retain their maximum flavor and strong overall nutritional value.
