Steam-to-Serve Petite Carrots
Grimmway Farms, Bakersfield, Calif., launched Simply Delicious Carrot Creations, an easy-to-prepare side dish made with fresh nutrient-packed petite carrots. Available in Roasted Garlic & Savory Herb and Honey, Brown Sugar & Cinnamon varieties, both options contain a flavored buttery dollop that once heated becomes a perfectly prepared sauce.
"Now more than ever, consumers are looking for an easy way to make more healthful meals for their families," says Bob Borda, vice president of marketing. "By developing flavorful products with our nutrient-packed carrots, we can give consumers new, delicious ways to add vegetables to their plate with the convenience and value they have come to expect from the Grimmway Farms family."
To prepare, simply remove from the refrigerator, heat microwave-safe bag in the microwave for two and a half to three minutes, remove and enjoy (oven instructions are also available). Heating the carrots marinates them in an intense, flavor-packed sauce.
They are available the refrigerated produce section of major food and mass retail outlets nationwide. Suggested retail price is $2.49-2.79.
