    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.

This is one of my kids' favorite potato dishes. I used to make this when they were babies, to get them to eat both potatoes and vegetables at the same time. I still make these because you can spice these up. What a great dish to compliment any roast or meal you are cooking!

You could try carrot cake, or cole slaw, carrot juice, glazed carrots, carrot and celery sticks, or add some to a baked chicken or roast.

Peel, and using a food processor, grind down about two cups worth and add to a meatloaf recipe. The veggies will help keep the meatloaf very moist.
