    LOL.. Lady friend down the river calls and says she kbnows how much I like carrots (I do), and she has some carrots for me.

    This is what she dropped off.


    That's NOT a dime, that's a quarter!


    I am still think upon what to do with 'em..... any suggestions? My first thought of course was with a ginger ale glaze...... too big, Affraid I'd have to cook 'em for a couple a days to get 'em tender. Then a thought come to me. Anyone here ever make hot carrot pickles? Like the pickled green beans they put in bloody marys? If I slice them they will make like 4" coupons of carrots. Maybe throw in some cocktail onions with it?

    I am still laughing at the size of those carrots!

    Any other suggestions? I could poach 'em, slice in half long ways hollow out for stuffing, and then smoke it all?

    Look at those carrots! Of course my first thing I did was pick one up and do my groucho marx cigar imitation and throw in a "whats up Doc".

    Isn't that amazing, ya know a few of those seeds could end world hunger and put the optometrists out of business..... Think of how big the bunnys would grow!
     
  4. Unreal!! I use a lot of Donkey manure in our gardens but looking at those carrots, she must own a Mule.. ;-)

    Holy cow! Those monsters are a meal all by themselves! I like carrots in lots of recipes...couple of my favorites are in beef stew, and roasted carrots and taters in a pot roast.

    I usually do a Easter carrot cake, but all the carrots are baby carrots. If these are baby carrots I would like to see a full grown one..... Its would be big as a baseball bat!

    I never baked carrots, I guess I am just not a health cooking type guy. But my favorite way to do fresh carrots is with a ginger ale glaze.

    If you want something different and delicious, try Carrot Pudding. It is a steamed pudding we have for Christmas Dinner.

    I like a good stew. But I'd have to mince a inch off the end to do a CI pot full. <Chuckles>

    ROFLMAO  .... I know that exact thought. Little carrots are always what are highly prized in cooking, but with monster carrots who knows.
