C is for Carrots

From Courgettes to Carrots. The GreatBigVegChallenge turns orange. But in order to do this with verve, Freddie and I require the appropriate inspiration from all of you out there...From Brazil to the Yukon we know you all love carrots. Share your affection!

And I am certain its no coincidence that as I write, the moon is turning an orange red. Its the night of the lunar eclipse. So clearly the solar system supports our GBVC.

  1. Do you ever make simple glazed carrot? Cut a couple of carrots up into a bite size dice. Put in a skillet with water to scarcely cover, a nice pat of butter and a couple spoons of sugar. Bring to a boil and simmer until the water has evaporated and the carrots are left with a shiny glaze. My 6 year old newphew loves these but the 7 year old prefers peas. I will ask them to check your blog out.

    I will try this - the carrot is of course more exposed to Freddie's wary gaze but it might be the bold step we need!

  3. I also like glazed carrots. After boiling them, bake them in the oven with a little brown sugar, butter, and ginger. Yum!

    What about trying something with carrot juice? Carrot-orange is a good combination. Maybe freeze it to make a sorbet?
