About

Chantenay carrots are a small, squat and outstandingly sweet heirloom variety. They were first developed in the Chantenay region of France in the nineteenth century, but fell out of popularity in the 1960s; a little tricky to grow, they didn’t fit with the shift towards ever-more-intensive agriculture. Thankfully, they’re seeing a much-deserved renaissance! Enjoyed their superbly sweet crunch raw, or cook to deepen and enhance their flavour.

How to prepare

The best way to accentuate carrots’ natural sweetness is to keep them away from water. Try roasting or braising, or add them to a stir-fry to preserve their fresh crunch. Roast carrots can be pepped up with flavourings: add spices such as fennel seeds, cinnamon, cumin; robust fresh herbs like thyme and rosemary; or a little sugar or honey towards the end of cooking.

Storage

Keep in the fridge.
