Remember all those carrots?

About 9kg of carrot "thinnings"

We peeled, chopped, blanched and froze a couple of kilos last night, and I also decided to try out this recipe for carrot bread.  And it’s a winner!

Carrot bread

Such a winner in fact that I have made more carrot puree and stashed it in the freezer, so I can make some more loaves.  I left out the peanuts, and used dinkel (spelt) flour and it has turned out fluffy and moist.  It’s not super carroty in flavour, and works with both sweet and savoury.   I did mine in a large loaf tin instead of two flat shaped loaves (since we tend to eat a lot of our bread toasted, this shape just works out better).
