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