besides pickling, how about a carrot salad?

there's loads of different variations, but one of my faves was my buddy ozzy's version. shredded carrots, raisins, walnuts or almonds, optional cubed apples or pineapple, s&p, and mayo.

When you want carrots, just scoop some out and cook till done and hot. You will have carrots that taste like they just came out of the garden all winter! Much better than the frozen that you buy!
Great idea!

When I had a juicer, we always looked for the big fat carrots. They are sweeter than the smaller ones. Carrot juice is nectar.

Tom mate try shredding the carrots and placing in a pyrex bowl then heat some plain oil in a pan and toss in some mustard seeds, when they pop pour over the carrots toss then serve cold with kebabs in a pita.

carrots, recipe

What Do you Do with Excess Carrots? I was given at least 15 Lbs of fresh carrots yesterday. Just picked. They are huge. It's been a good crop season around here this year. So, what to do with them all? Besides a carrot cake. Have to pass on the cream cheese. No offense I just think it's gross. Thank you Munky. 3 stars 1 reviews
