Carrot and Radish Pickle Recipe

Carrot is the vegetable of the month!


This month, we are learning all about carrots. Carrots come in many different colors: orange, yellow, white, purple, and red! Carrots are delicious raw and cooked. Eat raw carrots plain, or add to salad. Roast carrots in the oven with oil, salt, and pepper. Make a carrot and radish pickle, and eat plain or on a sandwich, or serve with meat or fish. Or, pickle carrots, jalepeño, and onion, and serve with tacos


Produce Tips


Choose carrots that are firm, not flexible
Avoid carrots that feel soft or limp, or have wilted greens
Store carrots in a plastic bag in the refrigerator. Remove carrot greens before storing.
Store carrot greens, peelings, and other vegetable scraps (mushrooms, celery, onion) in a plastic bag in the freezer. When the bag is full, boil in a large pot of water to make a tasty vegetable stock!
