  1. Yes good but ill give you my recipe if you wish .Sunshine carrots .Boil in orange juice add bit of flour and about table spoon of brown sugar. Stir and thickens ready to serve with bread sauce and roast chicken or even pan fried pork chops. Victorian recipe from farmhouse gardeners wife long ago in space and time.

  2. I’m not a huge carrot fan, but ah…butter makes everything better. 🙂 Seems like a tasty way to jazz things up. The spices sound like a great mix. I think I’ll try it. Thanks!

  3. I don’t think that carrots really get the use or respect they deserve. Remember the old joke, “you ever see a rabbit wearing glasses.” Well, it holds. More carrots mom…

      • We have a deal with a Keeper from AZ. He uses our field(central location) to come up in the spring and distribute 600 colonies. He leaves one hive on our place. The rest through 8 counties. In tge fall they gather them all up, we get a free case of fresh raw honey and they head back home for winter.

      • We have a great central spot and a close friend is partners with a guy from AZ. Every spring he comes up and sets up in our field. A couple of semi’s carrying over 600 colonies of bees sits on our property for 3 days. He brings in smaller trucks to move the colonies to about 8 different counties here in east/northeast Colorado. Its loads of fun every year watching them. I got to see a “swarm” up close and find out why, how, and how long it all happens. I garden and have bees resting on my arms/legs (the bee guy says they like human sweat?! haha). I have never been afraid of them and so love that they hang out here all summer long. In the late fall (before the deep frost) they will come and collect them all (just doing the reverse from spring) to head back to AZ for the winter. We get a HUGE case of fresh, raw honey for giving them a place to work from. We also have all the pollinating we can handle – LOL.

    • We grew them years ago and never could get them to grow very big. The soil has to be fertile and turned very well. When you plant them, don’t plant them all at once. Continue planting more seeds about every 2-3 weeks until about mid summer. Good luck!

  4. That sounds wonderful, Diane. I think the butter and herbs will provide a nice counterpoint to the sweetness of the carrots. Any suggestions for how long I should steam the carrots if I use raw ones?
