    I've loaded up on carrots.

    I couldn't remember where I was on the carrots when I went shopping and they were having a great deal. I got home and saw I already had 1 small bag and 1 large bag. And now I have 4 more small bags.

    Well...I could send some to Missisippifarmboy seein how he needs to eat his veggies....

    I've never made carrot soup....hmm...what to do...what to do....

    Quote:Funny, I just did the same thing. Bought a huge bag, got home, went to make room in my fridge and discovered I already had a huge bag, still mostly full. I'm not worried though... I have a house bunny who loves carrots! [​IMG]

    Quote:Loved the shredded carrots, huh? I'll have to try that. Maybe because shredded they look "worm-like"?? I'm gonna try that.

    I made the same mistake last week with celery. Nobody needs this much celery.

    Now where did I put that Peanut butter................?

    Alton Brown has a recipe for pickled carrots that looks tasty. Heres the recipe.
    1/2 pound mini carrots
    1 cup water
    1 cup sugar
    1 1/2 cups cider vinegar
    1 teaspoon onion powder
    1/2 teaspoon mustard seeds
    1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
    1 teaspoon chili flakes
    2 dried chilies
    Place carrots in a spring-top glass jar. Bring the water, sugar, cider vinegar, onion powder, mustard seeds, salt, and chili flakes to a boil in a non-reactive saucepan. Boil for 4 minutes.

    Slowly pour the hot pickling liquid over the carrots, filling the jar to the top. Place the chilies in the jar. Allow the carrots to cool before sealing. Refrigerate for 2 days up to 1 week.
