I know most people think about raw leafy salads or coleslaw when they see carrots, but for me possibilities are really endless.
I love them on raw salads with any kind of vinaigrette, as a roasted salad glazed with balsamic vinegar, cooked in a stew or soup and of course as a snack. Either plain or as a vessel to eat any kind of creamy dip!

I prefer them peeled but if they are really small the skin is soft that you can’t even notice it when you eat it.
I would also like to add that I love all sizes of carrots equally. For me a good carrot is sweet, crunchy, juicy and simply delicious. After many, MANY tests I came to the conclusion that the size or shape of it does not affect the taste. As long as the carrot is firm to the touch and has a vibrant orange color it’s really a hit or miss on account of flavor.
So, today I would like to introduce you to the wonderful and flavor packed world of pickled carrots.
There are a few number of ways to preserve carrots and to be honest quite a few ones to pickle them.

The method below is my favorite one to date and I use it all the time. It’s a very good way to use up any carrots that you might have in your crisper that are on the verge of turning on you.
Nobody wants to waste food. Am I right?
So do me a favor and try this recipe. Even if you don’t like pickles. I don’t either…

      Hello, unfortunately I can’t help you. The site is built on WordPress. I had it custom build and I have never had any problems. I can give you the details of the designers if you want to. They were very professional. I would hihgly recommend and they do work remotely.
