Can you eat carrot greens?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I just bought org local carrots with the greens attached still. There is more greens than carrot, and I don't want to waste the greens. What can I do with them?

Our bunnies love them. My step-father uses them for soup.

I toss them in with the other veggie scraps and bones when I make soup.

So I stuck it in with my beef broth, and it turned it very green,, I hope it is safe to eat. I will write back if I get sick, or won't write if I die.

The woman who runs my CSA uses them in place of fresh parsley. I think you'll live.

I found a great soup recipe recently that uses carrot tops! It's pretty easy to make TF friendly.

According to "Poison Help" carrot greens are considered mildly toxic. http://www.ohsu.edu/poison/documents...oxicPlants.pdf

I had heard that they can cause reactions in sensitive people. Skin issues and increased sensitivity to sunlight I believe.

I've also read that they may be "allergenic" only to individual folks, not "toxic" to all. It seems that raw carrot greens are more of the concern, from what I read.
