How To Grow: Carrot Imperator Organic

Suggestions: Onion, leek and herbs such as rosemary and sage act as a repellent to the carrot fly.

Preparation Ideas: Clean, peel and slice carrots. Bring 3 cm (1") of salted water to boil in a saucepan. Add the carrot slices. Return to boil, then reduce the heat and cover the pan. Cook until just tender, but not soft. This will take about 10-15 minutes. Drain and eat hot. For extra flavor add salt, pepper and butter.
