Organic Carrots

—by Katharine Holden, HPC Member

Hampden Park Co-op is packed with products you may not have tried before. Here’s the squeal on one:

Large and small bags of organic carrots are available year-round in HPC’s vegetable aisle. In addition, you will find bags of so-called baby carrots that are easy to eat with dip for a quick lunch or side-dish. Before you reach for these pre-peeled and cut baby carrots, consider whether you really couldn’t use the standard carrots in your recipe. If they’re organic, you don’t need to peel them due to pesticide fears.
