The last of the carrots are being pulled from the ground in backyard gardens in all but the warmest regions of the country. Instead of using them in the same old recipes, try a new one like one of the following.
1. Weekend Vegetarian Stew
– This stew is full of vegetables – carrots, Swiss chard, corn, pumpkin and more — along with barley, split peas and beans. Mushrooms and several herbs and spices add a ton of flavor.
4. Carrot Jam
– Carrots make an amazing colored jam, and their sweetness lends itself to jam.
5. Carrot Fritters
– Grated carrots are added to mashed potatoes bound with some egg and fresh breadcrumbs make yummy looking fritters, or are they patties?
