Farmers market baby Carrots

I know carrots are considered a common vegetable, but sometimes you can get excited about them.
These little farmers market beauties are only about 3 inches long, but as thick as normal size carrots and they are so fresh that the dirt they grew in is still on them. I washed and peeled them before I quickly blanched them in salted water, then they were finished in a saute pan with a dash of butter and a pinch of fresh chopped parsley. Simply delicious.

I agree, carrots are often overlooked. Your baby carrots looks amazing, wish I could get some here but not the right time of year. Thanks!
