We wish a Happy Thanksgiving season to all our Canadian friends.
I didn’t know how many pints of carrots I’d get out of 3 bags. But I was expecting more like 30 pints. Today, after the exercise routine, I came home and did carrots, and carrots, and carrots. In fact I have been working with carrots since 10.30 this morning and ended up putting the last batch in the refrigerator to process in the morning. There are 56 quarts and I promised DH that I would do split pea soup tomorrow. I’m beginning to be a stranger to the sewing room. But we will be eating this winter and until the next garden season.
The last 8 pints to fill this box are currently processing. As soon as they are finished, I plan to relax and not think about the other 3 large bags of carrots in the refrigerator. Maybe they can stay there a long time. We do use about a pint a week with potatoes. We put potatoes and carrots in the blender, add seasonings and enough broth to give us the consistency for a gravy, sauce, or soup.
