Carrot -

A root vegetable cultivated in both the United States and Europe, the small tender varieties for culinary purposes and the larger, later types for feeding cattle. It is one of our most wholesome vegetables and is consumed in a variety of ways - separately and in soups, stews, etc.

In cold storage, carrots have been held in barrels from November to the middle of July, but under other conditions they tend to heat and decay. If cold storage is not available, they are best stored on slat platforms, and covered lightly with sand. Good ventilation is an absolute necessity.

When purchasing carrots, see that they are firm to the touch and crisp when broken.

The juice of the red varieties is frequently employed on the farm to color butter.
