Recipe For Easy To Make Pickled Carrots

I was feeling all cheffy when I made my chicken ballotine with roasted and pickled carrots. I had recently bought some purple carrots and thought this would be a nice way to showcase them.

A while back I noticed that one of my knife handles had cracked. I sent an email to the company I purchased it from but never heard back from them. And so I went onto the brand’s website and found a link to their local agent. They replaced the knife for me without it being an issue. A while later I happened to be on a site where I could see a list of company directors. The people who own the company I bought the knife from also own the company that imports the knives. As a wholesaler selling to the retail industry they get to set the price they supply their customers at. And in turn, the retailer sets a price that we, the consumer, pay. Given that they own a retail store they could in fact supply their own business cheaper than their opposition.

To me this is unfair business practice and I would not be happy as a retailer to have to compete against my supplier. It has also made me look closer at all their prices before I buy from them. Something I had never done before. Usually I am not driven by price. To me it is the quality of the item I am buying that counts. Even when it comes to the fresh produce in my home. I have recently come across an organic fruit and vegetable supplier. Each week I get a list of what is available and I place my order. The box is then delivered to the local health store and I collect it from her. The produce is more expensive than my local shop, but I am supporting local farmers which is important to me. And the quality of the produce is amazing.

  1. Beautiful Tandy! I love supporting the local farmer’s, too when I can, but obviously I try to grow as much as possible! Through in some purple carrots but I am not optimistic, they aren’t looking great, we’ll see though!
