If you have an excess of carrots, or some that are wilting, cut them in slices and boil until tender. Then puree them in your blender, using a bit of the water. Freeze the puree in ice cube trays and use it as baby food, or as a substitute for pumpkin in muffins, etc. I also use it in yeast doughs, substituting half of the liquid for carrot puree. Gives the dough a nice yellow color but doesn't change the taste.

Too many summer veggies? Puree them for use in colder months. I have been using my food processor and will puree or liquefy any veggies I do not use and freeze. No cooking. Just put in a freezer bag. I add these to pastas, casseroles and soups...or any dish I want to add a little flavor to. They can also be used as a vegetable drink.

And remember to handle with clean hands AND CLEAN ALL VEGGIES WELL FIRST, then peel PRIOR TO CHOPPING/FREEZING.

Peel, then puree any extra zucchini. Pour into ice cube trays, freeze, then remove into ziplock bags. When baking, take out the amount of cubes needed to replace water or milk in the recipe, and defrost. The zucchini-milk will add nutrients and flavor to your recipes. (07/20/2008)
