Carrot tops edible?

Meijer has 'juicing' carrots on sale this week-and they still have all the green stuff attached I'm assuming this is to eat-to add to your juice? I'm going to try adding these carrots to my smoothies-can I put carrot and greens in it?

Re: Carrot tops edible?

I would maybe, but only if they are organic. Conventional carrots get sprayed many times.

The carrot greens can be used in salads as well! If they're organic it's important to use all parts of the vegetable to get all the nutrients. If your veggies are organic, no need to peel either!

Yes, be sure to wash them really well. They can really trap dirt!

Re: Carrot tops edible?

I chop them up freeze them and put them in soup... carrot is part of the parsley family... so it is just like parsley- maybe not quite the same taste but adds a little flavor none the less
