I’ve been buying baby carrots for the last year. They are precut and can be sliced or mashed after they are cooked. I thought they were easier to work with.

A couple of weeks ago, I was craving regular carrots. Don’t ask me why. I bought a bag and washed them up. Chopping carrots is too hard for me to do, so I went the lazy route and broke them into chunks. I put them in a glass bowl with some water.

I wasn’t sure how long to microwave them. Baby carrots can take anywhere from 3 to 5 minutes. I decided to start with 2 minutes.

I sure was surprised when I tested them with a fork and they were done. I couldn’t believe they took half the time of baby carrots.

Now all I cook is regular carrots. They may take a little longer to prepare but they microwave better and are sweeter.
