Carrots with Homemade Veggie Dip

Carrots are one of the top five crops grown here in Newfoundland and Labrador with the others being potato, turnip, cabbage, and beet.  Carrots are a source of fibre and vitamin C. They are also high in beta-carotene, which your body can turn into vitamin A.  Vitamin A is important for normal growth and development.  It also keeps your eyes, skin, and immune system healthy.

Local fresh raw carrots are delicious on their own or paired with a homemade veggie dip.  Here is a delicious one for you to try.
