I usually  buy carrots in bulk bags with the greens already removed, but last week I  bought a small bunch with the greens at the farmer's market.

Is there anything I can do with the greens?

Is it safe to assume that carrot greens are are compliant when both carrots and a variety of greens are neutral or better for all 3 of us?

I use like parsley (add to soup, salads, ...).

They are strongly flavored.

Some people react adversely to them.

I assume they are unrated (neutral).

I do not try to make sure I use all the tops I have.

They are supposed to be high in potassium.

I personally love the carrot tops. They have waaaay more Vitamin A than the actual carrots. I blend them with banana & dandelion greens to make a smoothie.

They are also great in soups! Om nom nom...

OK, I'll use some in the next batch of turkey broth I make, but I'll be careful not to over-use them. Maybe I'll freeze them in small bunches for future batches of soups.

ooh, I just had another thought. I'm busy making kale chips right now, and I wonder how the carrot greens would taste if I toasted them in the oven with olive oil and salt. Maybe I'll try a small batch of that when the kale chips are done.

My rabbits loved carrot tops, much more than the root   I'll have to give them a try.

I never thought to try the greens; thanks for the inspiration!


Let go of resistance; feel appreciation for what is, and eagerness for what is coming.
