EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Why it Works: Slow Cooked Carrots are a member of a large family of vegetables and herbs (parsley, coriander, fennel and dill, just to name a few). Rich in vitamin A and beta-carotene, carrots have been used for their medicinal properties for centuries. One of the great pleasures of cooking with carrots is their promised sweetness. Young, baby carrots are especially sweet, a characteristic that can be enhanced by slowly cooking them to convert their starch into sugar. A pinch of salt also intensifies their natural flavor.
