    I put my garden to bed yesterday and now have a lot of carrots.  I also have thyme and oregano.  I am at a loss for what to make with the carrots.  What do you suggest?

    My mother in law used to make carrots boiled with a little sugar and vinegar in the water, then added origano and garlic and oil.  She would preserve them like that, and they were tasty, but dangerous for botulism.  But you can cook them with garlic and oil and origano or thyme, after the parboiling with vinegar and sugar and they're quite good.

    april,

    if you have ALOT of carrots, you can shred them and freeze them for later use in carrot cakes, soups, gateaus etc. you can also freeze the thyme and oregano whole.....just put whole stems in ziplocs and freeze...they last forever.....so sad about all the gardens going to bed for the winter...just had to pull up all my herbs the other day....it almost physically hurts!

    Thanks for the healthy recipe, makes it easy when you don't have a lot of food in the house.

    Thanks for the carrot thread by the way.
