how do you like your carrots?

9 Mar

An important part of our seasonal food classes that we offer schools, involves tasting. In our study of carrots in science this week, students got to taste carrots cut into match sticks and sautéed until curly, carrots cut into french fry sticks, sprinkled with sea salt and baked, carrots steamed and tossed with a touch of maple syrup and then carrots grated and topped with a touch of lemon juice.  Students described their experience, laughed with surprise and then voted on their favorite – not an easy task.

The winner?

The easiest of all to prepare – grated carrots with lemon!

So the next time  you are pulling together a meal with little time, pull out the grater and lemon – “it’s fresh sweetness!”
