Carrots out the Wazoo

I got a ridiculously huge bunch of carrots in my CSA on Friday (Yes, it is January! This is why I moved to Austin):

Beta carrotene

And I’m expecting more today from my Dad’s garden. Not that carrots straight from the garden aren’t delicious, but I suspect I will become bored with them rather quickly. Planned so far: carrot salad with dried currants (dried fruit – gasp!), possibly carrot soup with dill, and carrot bread (Mark Bittman‘s recipe), which I just took out of the oven.

Mark Bittman’s carrot bread – definitely a keeper

What are your favorite ways to enjoy carrots?

A note on raisins: When I mentioned to my sister that I made carrot bread and that she would be getting half, she replied: “I hope there are no raisins in there; that would piss me off.” Obviously she doesn’t know me as well as a sister should! I couldn’t agree more with her standard raisin quote: “Raisins are nature’s way of giving you the finger.”

  1. Dang….just finished cleaning grocery store carrots to put in my lentils and chicken soup. (That’s two separate dishes…) How is the carrot bread?
