One bunch of real baby carrots. Not frozen or manufactured “baby carrots” like some lines in the supermarket.
Baby carrots have become a lunch box staple around the country. Parents love them for their convenience and because are a healthy food choice. Kids love them because they’re sweet and fun to eat. But what’s the real story behind baby carrots?
Strictly “baby” means immature, pulled from the ground before they reach full size. Originally that was the case, nowadays they have developed miniature strains which are mature when small in stature! Real baby carrots (miniature version of full size) are what they are, about 3 or 4 inches in length. Baby “style” cut carrots (those whittled down from larger carrots) started off by the “inventor” as being approx 2 inches in the 1980’s, and have remained so, more or less, ever since.
