Red Carrots


1 lb

If you really want to help your eyesight, perhaps you should switch to these gorgeous red carrots. Popular in Eastern countries like India and Japan, these carrots contain more lycopene and lutein than orange carrots, both of which are known to help prevent macular degeneration. Red carrots are also sweeter than the orange variety, so perhaps it’s time to whip up your signature carrot cake; or try your hand at Gajar Ka Halwa, an Indian carrot pudding. They would also be lovely simply roasted with a bit of olive oil and thyme or however you prefer to prepare your carrots--just make sure to use oil or fat when cooking them as lycopene and lutein are fat soluble nutrients! Store carrots wrapped or sealed in a bag in the fridge for up to two weeks.
