Do your carrots taste bitter, sometimes?  

Carrots should be stored away from fruits such as apples & pears, which release the ethylene gas that cause carrots to become bitter.  

This week we left the tops on the carrots for you.  When you get home, make use to cut the greens off!!! So that it stops drawing moisture from the vegetable.

Store the greens in a bag and make a Simple Pesto.

Put the carrots in a separate bag so that it retains it's moisture.

Other ways to eat carrot greens.

Delicata squash is often just the right size for a single serving.  Check out the 24 Best Delicata Squash Recipes.
