My mom used to make carrot/pineapple Jello, with grated carrots, crushed pineapple and orange Jello. Drain the crushed pineapple and use the juice as part of the cold liquid. I loved it!


Here's a recipe I saw Paula Deen prepare on her show called Copper Pennies. I haven't tried it, but it looks good!Recipes : Sweet and Sour Carrots or Copper Pennies : Food Network

Miss Beth have you ever substituted a little basil or spinach for the parsley...or do you use those as a matter of course......

If there is a food bank in your area I am sure they would love to take any you cannot use.

Or one thing we have done, even with non food items we did not want and did not particularly feel like having a yard sale, is put the stuff on a table in front of the house and put out a sign saying free.

Wish we were your neighbor, love carrots.

UB, spinach will work!!! My basil only have 4 leaves per plant. I have over wintered a nice spinach patch.

oh auntdot, I wish you were a neighbor too. But the only neighbor that will drive by will already have been given carrots. I might get 3 vehicles pass per day! (same guy coming and going)


There are no food banks here, I live in a very sparsely populated area

If you have any pre-schools or home daycares, they might take some for healthy snacks. Even if you had a small elementary near you, you can get alot of carrot sticks out of just a few pounds.

Pickled, grated in turkey/duck dressing, boiled with pork saurkraut and potatoes, fritters. Then there's:

1) Martha Stewart's Carrot-Raspberry Puree
2) William Sonoma (Thanksgiving & Christmas) Glazed carrots
and parsnips
3) The Joy of Eating Natural Foods - Agnes Toms ; Carrot Loaf
4) Down on the Farm Cookbook - Helen Worth;Honey Carrot
Marmalade

Give it to some local vets. they can grind up and add to dog, cat, horse - all kinds of feed. Or local restaurants.

WOW, 61lbs. I think all the bases for uses have been covered, canning juicing baking etc, but what about the dangers of eating to many?
You could turn orange, or start growing ears and a fluffy tail.... not good.
Feed some to the poor rabbit I say, give some away if possible, then can and juice most of the rest until you have just enough to do some baking but not tons.
