Yellowstone Carrot

75 days. The Dutch seed company from whom we import this unusual yellow Flakkee-type Carrot once joked that Yellowstone grows so well, you could grow it in the middle of the road. We won't go that far, as harvesting could be dangerous; however, this is an extremely productive, adaptable Carrot easily grown in many soil types. The yellow roots have a fine taste and strong, feathery tops. Pick Yellowstone smaller than its mature size of 10" long. These Carrots are superior when harvested small! Pair Yellowstone and Royal Chantenay together for Carrot and Ginger Soup. Heat olive oil and saute minced Garlic, Ginger root and Shallots in a soup pot. Add peeled and thinly sliced Carrots, thin ribbons of Sage, just a smidgen of crushed red pepper flakes, a drizzle of savory Thyme, honey and chicken stock. Bring to a boil and simmer, covered, for about 30 minutes. In small batches, puree the soup in a blender and return to the cleaned soup pot. Add heavy cream, some butter and salt and pepper to taste. Serve warm with buttery, Ginger-Garlic-honey croutons. (OP.)
