Orange Mokum Carrots


1 lb

Orange Mokum carrots are so crisp and delicate, they have to be dug out from the earth by hand; traditional harvesting equipment and even hand-harvesting (pulling them out by their tops) is too aggressive for these babies. Straight with a rounded bottom, as opposed to the typical pointy carrots, these deep orange Mokums are high in sugars and Vitamin A. Given their truly exceptional sweetness they are perfect for carrot cake or juicing with orange and ginger for a zingy morning pick-me-up. Take advantage of their sweetness in savory dishes too, like roasting with butter, garlic, and thyme. To store, keep the carrots in a covered container, submerged in water, in the fridge for up to a month. Change the water every 3-4 days or as needed.
