Use Carrots Bought On Sale

  • Cut carrots into thin matchsticks and use to garnish soups.

  • Puree leftover cooked carrots and use to thicken soups.

  • Make carrot curls:

    Slice a lengthwise strip from the carrot. Then, with a vegetable peeler, cut long, thin strips from the flat surface. The strips should curl (if not, wrap them around your finger). Drop into a bowl of ice water for an hour or longer.

  • Chop leftover cooked carrots and add to hamburger meat or use to extended meat loaves or meatballs.

  • Place finely grated carrots into commercial tomato sauce before heating to freshen its taste and reduce its acidity.

  • Grate raw carrots into slaws or salads.

  • Grate carrots and toss with lemon juice and black pepper. Serve along or with diced picked beets as an appetizer.

  • Roll cooked carrots in butter and combine with one or more tablespoons chopped herbs such as dill, chives or fresh rosemary.

  • For a delicious pickled snack, marinate carrot sticks in leftover pickle juice. And here you can recycle the pickle jar & the juice a couple of times.
