read on the news that it is better to cook carrots whole see here as more nutrients are retained like this. I tried it tonight and they were delicious. So much more flavour. My DCs agreed.

Did it take much longer to boil?

yes at least 10 minutes

I've been wondering about this. What if you're making soup though? Do the nutrients stay in the water?

If I click on the movie in the link will I just be watching 1 min and 50 seconds of a carrot cooking in a saucepan?

Presumably you are not supposed to peel them either?

I did peel mine actually and chopped the ends off but I think you're not supposed to. Old habbits die hard.

Really annoys me when reports like this leave out salient info - we need to KNOW about the peeling issue!
