We got our hands on some gorgeous purple carrots from Johnson’s Backyard Garden and couldn’t help but spend all day staring at them. Seriously – how beautiful are these carrots?! We chopped them up immediately, but not before we gave them a proper washing.
Do I Need to Peel Organic Carrots?
When you purchase organic vegetables from a farmers market they may not go through a cleaning process, so there tends to be a good layer of dirt on them. However, you don’t need to peel them!
How to Clean Organic Carrots
What you’ll need: carrots, a colander and a dish towel or paper towel
- Place your carrots in a colander and turn on the water!
- You can use a vegetable brush or a soft bristle brush – but we just used our hands. Rub the earth and any debris off the the carrots
- Gently pat the carrots dry
- Slice them length wise. No need to peel – we want to preserve that great purple color!
