Carrots keep for several weeks in a paper bag on a cool veg rack.
How to cook carrots
Boil or steam in 5-10 mins. But our top tip is to avoid cooking them in water. Instead, roast them to bring out their sweet flavour, or stir fry to keep their pleasing crunch. Really fresh bunched carrots are best raw or very lightly cooked.
