General Cooking Tips


If you’re cooking carrots on their own, then we’ve got a couple of tips up our sleeves. You could try adding a teaspoon of sugar, a pinch of salt and a knob of butter to the water before boiling – it’ll give you sweeter, glossier carrots. Or, as an alternative to grating, try slicing your carrots with a potato peeler – it creates long, thin, curled strips that look great in a salad. Nice and simple.
