Yellow carrots are grown specifically to yield a sweeter flavor at maturity. Yellow carrots have round shoulders and a blunt non-tapered tip. They have a firm and crunchy texture and an earthy-sweet flavor with notes of celery and parsley.
Yellow carrots boost the nutritional value of soups, stews, salads and are an indispensable ingredient in stocks. They make incredible pickled carrots, are quintessential for brining and deep-frying, and they make great protein companions when pan-roasted or grilled. All carrots pair well with other root vegetables such as turnips, beets and radishes, butter, celery, cheeses, especially cheddar, parmesan and pecorino, cinnamon, cream, ginger, parsley, potatoes, mushrooms, shallots, and tomatoes.
Carrots can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a month if stored properly. To prevent condensation from forming, wrap the carrots in a paper towel and then place them in a bag in the refrigerator, or use a perforated plastic bag. Excess moisture will cause them to rot.
