Glorious Green Carrot tops

Only recently did I discover the joy of carrot tops. We grow carrots in our garden each summer and I usually discard the carrot tops. But I now have learnt to use my carrot tops and I actually am more excited about the tops than the carrots.

I have used the carrots tops for pesto, but I absolutely love putting the tops in my stocks. It gives the stock a whole lot flavour with so little effort. I freeze the tops and pull them out when I am making a stock.

It makes me happy to be able to use the whole plant (carrot and tops) and not have any waste.
