Ministry of Agriculture Statement on Carrot Producers Situation

The importation of fresh vegetables is necessary to supplement domestic production as Belize does not have sufficient year round production. Importation is usually carefully timed to avoid oversupply or shortage of produce. There are periods when both imported and domestic products are on the market, usually at the start of or at the end of harvest. This period is most difficult to manage as a third factor -illegal contraband -imports also affect supply. This system of balanced importation is managed within the Ministry of Agriculture by the Chief Agriculture Officer and the Director of Extension.

The current problem being experienced by the carrot producers in San Carlos, Orange Walk District is being thoroughly examined to determine the cause, the impact and corrective measures necessary.

The Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries, Forestry, the Environment and Sustainable Development sincerely regrets any loss of production, especially to small farmers.

Best raw carrot salad recipe ever.
Use potato peeler to make ribbon strips of raw carrot.
Heat corn oil, add black or brown mustard seeds. Cook on high heat until all the seeds pop.
Pour oil and seeds on carrots.
Add pinch of salt if you wish.
Serve warm.

That's all you do ..... And the flavor is amazing.

PS - it must be corn oil. No other oil will give you the flavor you need for this dish.
