Maharees Carrots & Parsnips! 🥕🥕❤❤
. Lovely photo and comments by Cornelius Traas, of The Apple Farm in Tipperary, of the famed Maharees carrots.
.Cornelius posted this photo, and a story about receiving a present of this fine bunch of carrots and parsnips from a Kerry man on his way to the Ploughing Championships. A lively conversation ensued about how Maharees Carrots were once the most famous in Ireland, and the importance of using locally grown Irish food. .
Thank you Cornelius, for highlighting the value of locally grown, and of supporting local farmers. The Maharees is a special place on the north shore of the Dingle Peninsula. It's sandy shores and soil are perfect for growing the tastiest carrots and parsnips. With a pinch of salt and pepper, and a knob of butter, sure that's what the best Irish dinners are made of 😊😊☘☘
