Don't Throw Out The Carrot Tops – How To Eat Them

Are you like me and you grow your own carrots, or at least some of your own. If so you probably hate cutting off those glorious, bountiful green tops as much as I do. Well no longer do you have to throw them away and after you see how you can add them to dishes you will want to grow some carrots just so you can eat the tops.

I wish the store left the tops on so we could get them all winter. The Kitchen has a nice round-up of five ways to eat your carrot tops. If you do grow your own carrots and can’t use up all of the greens at once try blanching and freezing in small amounts to add to soups and such through the winter. You put the effort into growing them so save and enjoy that home-grown flavor even in the coldest of winter.

I grew a rainbow blend of carrots this year and if you have never tried the rainbow blend you might like to give it a try. All the carrots are good but I think my favorite is the white carrot. It seems sweeter and crunchier both raw and cooked.
