Carrots, Orange (no tops)
Hopewell Family Farm (WA)
Being a root vegetable, carrots can last any where from 3 to 5 weeks. Keep them in the crisper (they want just a tad bit of humidity) but away from ethelyne producers (e.g. apples, avocados, tomatos) as it can turn the carrots bitter.
The terpenoids are what drive non-sugar flavors, so it's all about the right balance. If the carrot tastes a little bitter, then roasting it will help break down the terpenoids and release some of the natural sugars.
In the 17th century, Dutch growers cultivated orange carrots as a tribute to William of Orange – who led the the struggle for Dutch independence – and the color stuck. A thousand years of yellow, white and purple carrot history was wiped out in a generation. The Horn Carrot derives from the Netherlands town of Hoorn in the neighborhood of which it was presumably bred. All our modern, western carrots ultimately descend from these varieties.
