(Recipe #46, page 61)
Wash the carrots clean, peel lightly, and then wash thoroughly again. To make them like spring carrots, take only the pointed ends and cook them as described in the instructions for spring carrots. To give them the necessary sweetness, however, add some sugar and at the end finely chopped parsley.
Side dishes as for early carrots.
Note: Though washing all vegetables clean before and after cleaning them contributes to their tasty preparation, it is particularly important that carrots be rubbed a bit between the cook’s hands in water and rinsed several times in fresh water, since even a little bit of the peel produces a strong taste.
