Carrots can be eaten raw or cooked, whichever you decide, it will be enjoyed. (Crunchy salads and carrot cake.) British carrots are at their best in August.

They are high in betacarotene, which is great for eye health (not strong enough to help you see in the dark like the trick the English played on the Germans in the world war 🙂 that’s just a myth! )

You can store carrots for up to a week in the vegetable drawer in your fridge.

There are so many menus you can create with carrots and one idea is to make a quick coleslaw.
