I hope that all of you had a nice Thanksgiving dinners and enjoyed family and friends time.

Can you share any recipes that you have for carrots? It is that time of the year in my garden that carrots are ready for harvest and I like to cook with carrots.
In past harvests I made carrot pickles, quick sweet carrot bread, carrot cake, roasted carrots, carrot soup.

The recipes can be a side dish, an appetizer, main dish and if you have a savory carrot bread, I would love that so I can freeze and enjoy later.

RE: Please share your best carrot recipes...

Silvia - Coincidentally, just yesterday I was thinking about a recipe for corn fritters and scallops, posted by Lori, a former "regular" here. When I searched for the thread and saw that almost three years ago I had declared it was "in my list of top favorite things I've ever made," I decided it's time to make them again. Here's the recipe, and a link to the past thread.

Seared Scallops, Carrot Fritters and a Yoghurt Dressing

12 medium-sized scallops, intestinal tract removed
2 tablespoons olive oil
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper

to serve
carrot fritters (below)
yoghurt dressing (below)
watercress

Place the scallops in a bowl, add the olive oil, season with salt and pepper and stir to combine. Heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium to high heat and cook the scallops for 1 minute each side.

Place 3 carrot fritters on a plate, top with the watercress and scallops and drizzle with the yoghurt dressing. Season with pepper. Serves 4.

Carrot Fritters
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup club soda
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon superfine sugar
1 teaspooon sea salt
1 small red chili, seeded and finely chopped
1-1/2 cups grated carrot
8 green onions (scallions), finely sliced
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
1/4 cup vegetable oil

Preheat the oven to 315 F. Place the flour, club soda, egg, cumin, coriander, turmeric, sugar and salt in a bowl and mix well. Add the chili, carrot, green onions, and cilantro and stir to combine. Heat a frying pan on a mdium to high heat, add the oil and heat until hot. Cooking in batches, add 2 tablespoons of batter per fritter and cook for 2 minutes each side, or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Cook teh remaining fritter batter, adding extra olive oil if necessary. Place the fritters on an ovenproof plate lined with paper towels and keep warm in the oven while you cook the scallops.

Yoghurt Dressing
1/2 cup plain yoghurt
1 tablespoon lime juice
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil

Place all the ingredients in a bowl and whisk.

RE: Please share your best carrot recipes...

Hmm? Carrots?
My mother and I also always made "pink potatoes" as a way to get some vegetables into toddlers...potatoes and carrots cooked and mashed together.
And then there is "orange carrots...no real recope, but boil the carrots in as little an amount of water as you can to get them almost tender....add "some" orangejuice enough to just cover the carrots, and a pat of butter, or 2.. and cook until the juice is reduced and forms a little thick sauce.....also good with a few gratings of ginger as you reduce the sauce.
And there's this soup.
Sherried Carrot Soup

1 onion, chopped
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
6 carrots, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 cups chicken broth
1/4 cup medium-dry Sherry, or to taste
1/2 cup heavy cream
White pepper to taste
Chopped fresh parsley leaves for garnish

Cook carrots and onion in chicken broth over medium heat for 20 minutes or until tender. Put that mixture and remaining ingredients, except parsley, into food processor or blender. Process until smooth. Chill and serve. Garnish with parsley.
And this
Cardamom Carrots
Ingredients:
1/4 cup orange juice
2 pounds carrots, cut into 2-inch julienne strips
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cardamom
1 teaspoon grated orange peel
Directions:
1. Place 1 in. of water in a saucepan; add carrots and salt. Bring to a boil; reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 7-9 minutes or until crisp-tender; drain. In a large skillet, combine the orange juice, butter, brown sugar, cardamom and orange peel. Cook and stir over medium heat for 1-2 minutes or until sauce is thickened. Add carrots; toss to coat.

and these pickles;
Carrots pickled elphaba
peel 10 medium sized carrots (better too many than not enough)
slice carrots on the diagonal
mince 1 large jalapeno in food processor
add carrot slices and jalapeno bits from processor to collander over a bowl, stir 2 tsp of salt thoroughly into raw carrots and jalapeno and cover collander with a dish cloth for 3 or more hours (there may be lots of liquid at bottom of bowl after it sits)
start sauce pan with 1 cup of white vinegar and 1 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of black peppercorns and 3 bay leaves and carrot mixture (don't need to rinse and don't add liquid from bowl). When saucepan boils (after around 13 to 15 minutes or so depending on your stove/longitude/etc) turn off heat and let carrots sit until cool. Spoon into jars and fill jars with vinegar water from the saucepan after carrots have all been added. Chill. Carrots are better after they have chilled 24 hours in my opinion. Others may disagree.
usually makes around 2 pint jars of pickled carrots, sometimes a little more depending on the size of carrots originally used.

And this....lovely in individual ramekins
1/2 cup crushed corn flakes -- or walnuts 3 tablespoons brown sugar 2 teaspoons butter -- room temperature
� FOR THE SOUFFLE:
� 1 pound carrots, cooked -- until tender
� 3 eggs
� 1/3 cup sugar
� 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
� 1 teaspoon vanilla
� 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter � melted
� Dash of nutmeg
� Pinch of salt -- (optional)
� Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
� For the topping: Combine the crushed corn flakes or walnuts, brown sugar and butter. Set aside. Puree the cooked carrots and the eggs in a blender (do not use a food processor). Add the sugar, flour, vanilla, butter, nutmeg and salt and blend. Pour into a 1 1/2-quart pan or souffle dish and bake for 40 minutes. Spread the topping over the souffle and bake 5 to 10 minutes longer, until the topping is lightly browned.

And of course there is Peter Rabbit salad....grated carrots mixed with a little mayo and a few raisins.

And that salad called copper pennies...don't have the recipe...but it contains canned tomato soup...

And this from Nancy...had good reviews from the people I have given it to.
Carrot Cake Jam

1 1/2 cups grated, peeled carrots
1 1/2 cups cored, peeled pears
1 3/4 cups canned pineapple, including juice
3 T lemon juice
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1 package of powdered pectin
6 1/2 cups sugar

In a large saucepan, combine carrots, pears, pineapple with juice, lemon juice, and spices. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring frequently. Reduce heat, cover and boil gently for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and stir in pectin until dissolved. Bring back to a full boil, add sugar all at once, bring back to another boil and boil hard for 1 minute.

Remove from heat, skim off foam. Ladle into prepared jars with 1/4 inch head space. Process jars in a BWB for 5 minutes for sterilized jars, or 10 minutes for unsterilized jars.

Makes 6 half pints.

And my favorite carrot recipe!

RE: Please share your best carrot recipes...

This is our favorite carrot side dish from our friend Gail:

GAIL'S CARROT CASSEROLE

4 lbs carrots (2 - 3 lbs if peeled)
1/2 c. carrot juice (from cooked carrots)
1 c. mayo (Hellmans)
4 Tbs. horseradish
4 Tbs. minced onion
1 1/2 c. finely crushed wheat thins (1/2 - 3/4 box)
salt and pepper
butter

Preheat oven to 375F.

Peel carrots, cut into 2" pieces and quarter each piece. Boil carrots in water until tender. Drain carrots and reserve juice for the sauce.

Combine carrot juice, mayo, onion and horseradish.

Layer 1/2 of the carrots in a casserole dish. Dot with butter and dust with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with 1/2 of the wheat thins and 1/2 of the sauce. Repeat layering.

Bake for 45 - 60 minutes at 375F (or until browned).

RE: Please share your best carrot recipes...

I am probably the last person to offer "best carrot recipes" since it is one of two vegetables that I dislike immensely. (sounds better than HATE).

But, one way that I cook carrots that Moe and my neighbour loves is, to simmer whole carrots in a shallow skillet in a little water, when they are almost tender, and the water has almost evaporated, add a chunk of butter and some brown sugar or maple syrup, and continue cooking, spooning the sauce over the carrots until the sauce thickens slightly and the carrots are glazed.

RE: Please share your best carrot recipes...

If you look at the header for this forum on the opening screen, you will find a link to our FAQ section. There you will find a whole bunch of carrot recipes that were posted for one of our Cookalongs. Those are all T+T recipes.

I tried a new to me recipe this fall and have made it several times in the last month. There is just someting about the flavor combination that calls me. I even had to get up in the middle of the night to eat some of the leftovers. Here ya go.....

Maple Glazed Carrots

1 lb of carrots, peeled and cut into 1/4 inch thick rounds.
1 tablespoon of butter.
1 tablespoon of olive oil
2 tablespoons of maple syrup.
1 orange (the juice) (I added a little zest too)
1 teaspoon of brown sugar. (I was generous with the brown sugar)
1/8 teaspoon of cinnamon
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste.


Preparation
-Place the carrots in a shallow saucepan, and cover with salted water. Boil until crisp-tender, about 5 to 8 minutes. Drain well.
-Heat a skillet, reduce heat to medium and add the butter and olive oil. Then the carrots.
-Add the maple syrup and the orange juice. Stir.
-Sprinkle with the cinnamon, black pepper and sugar, stir again.
-Cook until the juices are reduced to a glaze.

RE: Please share your best carrot recipes...

Nancy, I've used that recipe too, and I've drizzled some maple syrup on roasted root vegetables, I love that combination.

Like Ann T, I usually cook the carrots until nearly done then add brown sugar and butter and let it get a bit "caramel-y". More like dessert than a vegetable, but it's sure good.

Annie

RE: Please share your best carrot recipes...

I cut them into matchsticks and saute lightly in a skillet with oil, (could be butter), chunky orange marmalade and a bit of orange juice. They're just tender with a slight glaze, no liquid remaining. Just add a few shakes of dried basil to complete the dish. It was a winner here on Thanksgiving!


 o
RE: Please share your best carrot recipes...

I served the first recipe for Thanksgiving. The recipe calls for tarragon, but other herbs will work just as well, or a sprinkle of lemon pepper would be nice.

The soup recipe is one I've made for many years as a quick-and-easy light accompaniment with chicken salad sandwiches. -Grainlady

CARROTS AND SNOW PEAS
(source: Pillsbury Garden Fresh Salads & Vegetables)

1 T. oil
2 c. thinly sliced carrots (I used a mandoline for cutting)
2 T. white wine, chicken broth or water
2 t. chopped fresh tarragon or 1/2 t. tarragon leaves
1/4 t. salt
1/8 t. pepper
1-1/2 c. fresh snow peas or pea pods, cut into thirds

In large skillet or wok, heat oil over high heat; stir in carrots, white wine, tarragon, salt and pepper. Cook covered 2-4 minutes or until carrots are crisp-tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in snow peas; continue cooking and stirring 2-3 minutes or until snow peas are crisp-tender. Garnish with fresh tarragon, if desired. Yields 6 (1/2 c.) servings.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

CARROT-CELERY SOUP

1. In large saucepan heat 1 T. salad oil. Add 1 c. each - thinly sliced carrots and celery; 1/4 c. chopped onion.

2. Saute vegetables 5 minutes, stirring frequently.

3. Add 2 cans condensed chicken broth and 2 cans water (or homemade chicken broth), 1-1/4 t. soy sauce and pepper (optional).

4. Simmer, covered, 15-minutes until vegetables are crisp-tender.

5. Add 1/4 c. dry white wine and sprinkle with 2 T. chopped parsley.

(I usually make 1/2 a recipe.)

RE: Please share your best carrot recipes...

Thank you for all the recipes!!! They all look so tasty and I am going to print them and try them all.

I knew that I can count on the wonderful posters in this forum to expand my horizons. After I spend a few years of training here, I hope that I will be a better cook.:)

I like carrots so much that I do multiple plantings and I agree that can be used as sweet and savory dishes depending on what your preference is.

Foodonastump - Those carrot fritters are calling my name, thank you for posting. And I really like the presentation on the link and yogurt dressings are one of my favorites, with the scallops the dish look so elegant!

Lindac - You are the bible in carrot recipes! Thank you for taking the time to post your favorite carrot recipes and they are all so different, I am going to have fun. I will make some into pickles for sure. I made the carrot jam last year from Mes Confitures, it is time to try a new recipe. The cake I will make for a friend's birthday coming up.

Barnmom - Soup is on top of my list for comfort foods. I can never get tired of them or have enough recipes. I will try your soup, thank you.

Ovenbird - Thanks for posting your friend's Gail Carrot Casserole, I will make it for a get together with friends.

Ann t - Don't break my heart! lol. Vegetables are so colorful, tasty and good for you. And yes glazed carrots are simple and yet so delicious!

Nancy - Thank you for letting me know about the FAQ, I will use it in the future for sure. Your maple glazed carrots are for sure yummy, easy and fast to make,thank you for the recipe.

Annie - Thank you for letting me know your favorite way to use carrots.

Compumon - Thank you for your recipe, and you gave me a good idea about using the orange marmalade, I have some from the garden and basil too.

Grainlady - Thank you for your healthy recipes! They will be served for my family like in every day meals.

Laceyvail - That carrot orzo is ingenious. I will try that for a party, thank you for the recipe.

I made some different carrot pickles with different colored carrots last season

And these are my carrots today, waiting for a harvest and then I will plant them again

RE: Please share your best carrot recipes...

My favorite use of carrots is in mirepoix, or sofrito. The carrots, and equal amounts of celery and onions, are finely chopped and sauteed in olive oil. This mixture is a flavor base for braises, soups and sauces.

I am preparing to make a large amount of mirepoix which I will freeze in small containers. That will greatly shorten prep time when I want to make one of those dishes.

One very successful use of mirepoix was when I browned some thick pork chops and braised them with a lot of mirepoix. At the end, tomato sauce was added, making a delicious pasta sauce.

RE: Please share your best carrot recipes...

I'm not much of a carrot lover either, and I do not like them overcooked. I will make a glaze but use a touch of Herbsant (or probably any other anise-flavored liqueur)in it. It really gives them a lovely flavor.


 o
RE: Please share your best carrot recipes...

Jim - That is a good idea and saves time in future cooking to make a mirepoix or sofrito to freeze in small portions. And I had tomato sauces with added carrots and they were delicious! it is time to try them again, thank you for your good ideas.

Maxmom - I never had Herbsant but I have other anise flavor liqueurs, it sounds interesting and sometimes I like to cook with spirits, I will try your recipe soon, thank you. When I am in a mood for something refreshing, I make a carrot juice mixed with orange juice.

Silvia

RE: Please share your best carrot recipes...

I cut them into matchsticks, saute until tender and toss with sesame oil, soy sauce, a dash of rice vinegar and toasted sesame seed. Also this soup recipe was good although I think I will try it again without the honey.

RE: Please share your best carrot recipes...

Jxbrown - Thanks for the recipes, the one with the matchsticks sounds like a good one to try and I think I can add some Chinese cabbage and cooked ground pork to the dish.
I saw the link with the honey mustard carrot soup recipe from Mark Bittman and you are absolutely right, I am sure the soup is better without the honey. I was surprised when I tried some of the recipes from the same book, sometimes they missed on something.

RE: Please share your best carrot recipes...

Silvia, you are the carrot queen! Do watch out when your are foraging in your carrot jungle. There could be wild animals hiding in there to make you into their dinner.

One favorite way, not a recipe, I like in using carrots:

Carrots are too common everyday vegetable no matter what recipes you use. I consider carrots have two parts, the outer "bark" and the center yellowish core (heart). The center core has a different texture and taste, a little more tender and sweeter. I often use the outside "bark" for general cooking or making juice and use only the core for special cooking. Kind of making carrots very special. For lack of a better word, "classier"?

I will make a few carrot dishes the next time I buy some carrots.

RE: Please share your best carrot recipes...

Dcarch, you are so funny! But you are not too far from the truth. My good luck is that the snakes left when we start having colder days, otherwise I always meet one and just in case I am very careful where I put my hands since I don't know very well which one has poison or not.

I always get my brain in gear when I talk to you, your way of looking at the same thing but different is amazing, not everyone can do that.

And all the recipes previous posted assured me that carrots can be used every day or as a special occasion, so yes they can be classier or homey. For savory dishes I like to use herbs and for sweet dishes I like cardamom. I am still trying to find a savory carrot bread that I can freeze.

I will love to see your carrot inspirations when you have the time....

RE: Please share your best carrot recipes...

Sylvia, my best carrot recipes are on the link that Denise posted. How many pounds of carrots do you harvest in a year? Do you use the green tops for anything?


 o
RE: Please share your best carrot recipes...

Ruthanna - That Marrakesh salad is calling my name, easy to do and ingredients that I already have, I will make it soon. And I will try the pork and carrot recipe for a family meal...

I do succession planting of carrots, I never pay attention to the pounds harvested. I have been harvesting some already and using them in cooking. I make my own dog food and have been using the sweet potatoes, now is time to give them carrots. If I had chickens I would use the tops and I am sure they can be added in small amounts to green salads or soups for the family, they are highly nutritious.

I am just like you, I don't like some of the store bought carrots, when I harvest the whole raised bed some are left in the fridge and always share the bounty with friends. I grow more than ten different kinds at the same planting.

Thanks for the recipes and I am looking forward to try them.

Silvia


 o
RE: Please share your best carrot recipes...

Silvia, those pickled carrots are beautiful.

I also plant the multi colored carrots instead of just orange. My favorite color is the Purple Dragon, they are purple outside but orange-ish inside. Last year I planted a mix of orange, purple, white and yellow, but the kids love them fresh from the garden and so I seldom have them anyway except raw, and if my great-nephew, Noah, beats me to the garden, I don't have any, LOL.

Jim, Elery uses mirepoix in nearly every soup and sauce he makes, I think. He also adds carrots to chili and tomato based sauces to add some sweetness, so although I seldom cook carrots by themselves, we use them in a lot of things.

They are grown here and sold as deer bait for $4 a fifty pound bag, bug those are usually the really big ones. I ought to use those (and cabbage) more often, they're cheap and local and usually very good. The ones from the grocery that come from across the country? Not so good, usually. Who knows how long they've been in storage...

Annie


 o
RE: Please share your best carrot recipes...

Thank you Annie.

Every season I make sure I have enough pickles to last me when I don't have carrots, I usually put them on top of a green salad. I planted the purple dragon this season, my favorite is an oriental type that is red outside and red inside, but in general I like them all. They are so versatile.

Annie, you live in bargain heaven! I never visited your area, but I used to live in Chicago for a while.
Those big carrots are probably very good for juicing, in another countries carrot juice is as popular as orange juice here.

I looked everywhere for a savory carrot bread recipe with our measurements because is easy for me to follow, but so far I had no luck. I like to keep an assortment of frozen quick breads sweet and savory to give away later or for parties.
