carrots harmful when bad? how to tell?

    this looks rather out of place in this section since most are about some sex/attraction problem- but this is titled health..

    I bought some carrots very cheap-presumably because they were near their sell by date- theyd got black spots and felt slightly slimy- but when I peal them there completely ok- orange and crunchy

    the only sign that they might not be alright is that they have this pattern that looks-i can only describe it like the bark of a tree or like yogurt or milk when its off maybe- but other than that they look completely fine and the one i tasted was completely fine

    Im thinking if I steam them- since their vegetables- they wont be harmful to eat?- even if I eat quite a large amount (ie 800g or something)

    If you've got rid of all the mouldy bits they should be fine.

    I wouldn't eat them but I've got a phobia of mold. I suppose they can't do much damage if you don't eat the mold.

    Just eat the bits that look healthy - if they look bright and orange and are quite firm, they are fine. It's when they're black and squidgy that you've got to watch out!

    Potatoes, carrots and onions tend to have sell-by dates that are far shorter than their actual usable dates.

    Particularly potatoes; they're just fine even a month after the date by which they supposedly should have been consumed.

    if you cut off the mouldy bits.. it should be fine. I used to do that with cheese... I'm still here
