Sweet tasting Ohakune Carrots, with a greater natural sweetness
Naturally grown, minimal sprays used
For boiling carrots, it is best to boil them for 12-15 minutes.
6 - 8 minutes to steam carrots that are sliced 1/2cm thick.
Carrots are full of sulfur & glutathione which helps in the detoxification process, especially when eaten raw.
A raw carrot is a great alternative to fruit
Carrots should be eaten both raw & cooked.
Roasting brings out the sweetness in carrots, which works well with savoury flavours. Cut carrots into large chunks & roast with olive oil, cumin & cinnamon. Once cooked, toss them with raisins & parsley.
Grate & add them to stir-fries, bolognese sauce or pasta bake. Steam carrots & mix them through mashed potato.
Transform carrots into an exotic, boldly flavoured Moroccan side dish by braising them with mint, cinnamon, garlic, red pepper, coriander, honey & lemon.
Buy carrots without the greenery still on them, otherwise those pretty leafy tops will act like nutrient vampires sucking out the vitamins & moisture before you can eat the carrots.
Carrots pair well with mild or strong flavours... use spices like; cinnamon, cumin, coriander, ginger, nutmeg & paprika, along with herbs: dill, fennel, parsley, rosemary, sage, thyme, basil & garlic
