Root Vegetable Bread Pudding

What a great different way to enjoy the abundance of eggs along with the solid staples of our root veggies and have something baking in the oven during these cold days!  Thanks Donna for another great recipe idea. 4 C root vegetables (I used beets and carrots) 1 1/2 C Onions – chopped 1 clove […]

Zanahorias Aliñadas (Marinated Carrots)

‘Tis the season for roots and with the sometimes busy & chaotic nature of the holiday season it is always nice to have a dish that is meant to be served at room temperature.  We first made this dish several years ago as part of a Tapas Farmhouse Lunch we served to a group from […]

All in on Carrots

It has been a carrot (and beet) heavy week.  It was time to disturb those lovely, quiet rows of storage carrots and beets and bring them in for eating now and through the winter.  Just a few rows, doesn’t seem like that big of a job, right? Well, pulling them isn’t too bad, but once […]

Carrot Steaks

Donna introduced us to these and they are simple and delicious!  There is a lot of flexibility on the spices and herbs you choose what is surprising is how well the spice mix does come through in the finished carrot steak.  Our current massive carrots are perfect this way! There are many variations – we […]

Carrot Soufflé

  Another recipe tested on farmers for lunch, and it got a thumbs up all around.  We found the carrot souffle particularly nice paired with some spicy items — we had a spicy dressing on a salad, but with a spicy meat dish it would be great too. Ingredients 3lb Carrots 3 Tablespoons Lard/Butter 1 […]

Carrot Harvest

The harvest of the storage carrots has begun and they are gorgeous!  It seems some of our changes this year are paying off including the bed shaper, biochar and foliar feeding. Carrots are one of those elusive ones during the growing season. Not only are they underground, but due to carrot rust fly they also […]

Root Vegetable Latkes

There are loads of recipes for root veggie latkes, here is just one as a starter from Rachel Levine did a great piece in Huffington Post and encourages some fun spicing options. Mark Bittman has recipes for ones with potato & beets, but potato and carrot would work super well too, we have even just used […]

Carrot & Beet Salad

or if you are feeling Parisian, Carrottes et Betteraves Râpées   from Chocolate & Zucchini, a great food blog from a Parisian. Clotilde notes, “I’ve written this salad into a recipe below, because that’s what food bloggers do, but the truth is I never make it twice the same way.” And this is also great with […]
