It’s not uncommon to find carrots this size in our part of the world.
That’s right one of them is 3 inches wide. These were a bit bigger when I bought them as they were caked with dirt, but after a lot of scrubbing this is what I found. I generally avoid carrots this size and try to pick out the smaller ones because honestly when they get this big they don’t have much taste, but these surprised me. They were amazingly sweet, much like the carrots from the bazaars in Turkey. They were worth the work to scrub them, now the question is will the next bunch I buy be just as good? It’s always a tossup.
