Hi there. A couple of weeks back, I bought a 2 pound package of fresh carrots and put it in the fridge. I'm not a terrible fan of vegetables, so I'm not eating them very avidly. (The package in the fridge is half open, so air is inside.) It turns out that in the meantime, the carrots started sprouting roots! Some of the smaller carrots dried up; some started to rot; and the majority is sprouting roots. Is there anything wrong with those carrots that started sprouting? I tried some of the sprouting carrots. I peeled off the skin and the roots. Those carrots only seem to taste more bland, but otherwise, seem fine. I've heard that potatoes, once they start sprouting, aren't edible anymore because their chemical composition changes (even though they still look fine otherwise).
