Do not buy the five pound bag of organic carrots at Giant.
Repeat: do not buy the five pound bag of organic carrots at Giant.
Do not be tempted by the cheap price.
Do not be tempted by the “organic” label.
If you do not heed this warning, you may end up with carrots that have tough, sharp, hay-like fibers in their centers.
These fibers will not cook away.
Not even if you put them in soup and simmer them for several hours.
These fibers will mean that you will be forced to throw out the entire batch of Moroccan soup that you intended to take for lunch all week.
These carrots will leave you feeling bitter and cheated.
Avoid these carrots at all cost.
