WORLD CARROT MUSEUM
I'm having some eye trouble, so naturally my thoughts turned to carrots. I made Gingered Carrot Soup from an old Enchanted Broccoli Forest recipe. However, I put in way too much lemon juice (I recently squeezed 100 very potent little lemons) and it's basically inedible, though I've been trying -- I just had a bowl cold with sugar sprinkled on top for breakfast.
I'd toss the rest, but after visiting the World Carrot Museum website, I'd feel like I was throwing away pure gold.
Here's what I found out: CARROTS ARE REALLY GOOD FOR YOU!
And catch this:
Carrots cooked whole are better for you than if you cut them up first! A lot better -- like 70% better. And they taste better if you cook them and then cut them. A lot better according to taste tests.
