Buyer's guide

Choose firm carrots and avoid those that are flabby with wilted green tops. Go for small carrots if you can, as they are more tender than large ones and need very little cooking.

Preparation

Smaller or organic carrots only require topping and tailing and a quick scrub. Larger, non-organic carrots will benefit from peeling.
