Peter Rabbit knows something you should know

The Magic Gardener has been at it again: have food blog, will cook -

Autumn pesto

The basil is kaput. The rocket has long entered outer space. The parsley is all washed up and seedy. What to make fresh pesto with?

Fear not – those juicy late season carrots hold the solution!

Carrot top pesto


In France they sell carrot tops, sometimes even without carrots… The French know a thing or two about nutrition and gourmet food. Even in the UK in Victorian times, people utilised the fresh green tops of carrots for more than the compost pile. So, the next time you pull some nice fresh carrots from the soil, keep the tops and Hey Pesto!

To see the recipe go to the Magic Gardener;s food blog (Extreme Permaculture in the Cambrians) at:
