What do you do when you have an abundance of carrots?  You think of creative ways to use them all, right?  I recently made homemade carrot butter, and the recipe is one I just have to share with you.  I am sure you will enjoy it as much as we are.  What is carrot butter, you may ask?  It is similar to apple butter, and oh so yum!

  1. I am not sure I could do carrot butter. Interesting!

  2. Adding chow mein noodles… now that’s wacky & unexpected 😀

    • All the recipes I could find called for nuts. Since we have a peanut allergy in the house, we don’t cook with nuts. I use chow mein noodles in a LOT of recipes that call for nuts. LOL.

  3. I actually think my kids would love this!

  4. Thanks! Im going to try this tonight. I wonder also if I used yams or sweet potatoes how that would taste? Or even pureed pumpkin….hmmmm….carrots first though…gotta use up those carrots! LOL Thanks again! =)

  5. I’ve had apple butter but not carrot. Might have to give it a try!
