Its a pretty common question, and I think it could all be put into one thread.

Anyway... I have a LOT of baby carrots in the house and I need to use them all up by this weekend or they'll go bad on me.  We've got more than enough for just snacking on them. I need your carrot recipes!

Well, if you provide them with enough care and nurture, they will grow up into adult carrots, right? That is how food works?

Carrot bread is delicious and you can freeze it. Also wrap it in cellophane with a ribbon and give it to co-workers you think are OK.

Pick one

Fry them in butter and garlic.

In fact, do that for everything that you have in abundance.

My problem with carrot cake/bread is that all the recipes ask for grated carrots, and baby carrots are hell to grate because of their size.

Does it work if I put them in the blender instead?

I can't see how using a food processor or something similar very carefully wouldn't do the same job. Just don't BLEND them. Or do, and have carrot smoothies.

Clearly a slap chop is required in this situation.

First of all, pickle them. Technically this won't consume them, but it will give you a month or so to eat them. And besides, pickled carrots are delicious.

Second, let me be preachy for a moment and suggest not buying 'baby' carrots in the future. As you now know, they're hard to chop up. To make matters worse, they're often dry, chalky, and split because they're so desiccated. Whole carrots are easy to cut up, come with carrot greens (which taste, unsurprisingly, like carrots and can be used in lieu of carrots in many dishes), and usually cost no more than baby carrots.

A slap chop would actually work perfectly.

Man, I don't think I've ever had a bag of dry baby carrots.  I'm not sure where you get yours, Iron Colonel, but your experience seems to be the exact opposite of mine.

Baby carrots are one of the best bagged vegetables to open up and munch on. FeCol, what are you doing to dry out your carrots? Why?

I second the "don't buy baby carrots". We used to buy them by the bagful, because Chinko likes carrot sticks with his lunch instead of chips. But it's the work of a minute to peel and slice one into sticks. They taste better in everything.  Baby carrots start off fine, but after a couple days, they get chalky. And they just don't taste as carroty as the big ones.

Anyways, I made a ginger carrot salad dressing the other day. That tasted pretty good, but I can't recall what I put in it, other than carrots and ginger of course.  I've seen recipes for curried carrot soup online that look pretty good. We just don't like carrots enough for me to try it.

Other than carrot sticks, I like to peel and roast carrots like I do pretty much every vegetable that crosses my path. I did some roasted carrots and beets the other day that were pretty kick ass. I also cut them up into soups and stews. If I make a potroast, I cook potatoes and carrots with it. When I make spaghetti sauce, I start with a mire poix, which is carrots, onions and celery cooked together. Same when I make tomato soup. And of course, they are good sliced over a salad.

"Chalky". That's a better word for what I mean; it's much more accurate than "dry".

I would cut the tomato parts out and just have the beefsteak part, as beef steaks are delicious.
