This was the load I started . . I think it was Saturday afternoon and it was all finished very early Monday morning.
The carrots are on the right. The two white-ish jars in the front are mushrooms that I ran through the blender to make powder. There’s a quart and a pint of sliced mushrooms and the green is the carrot tops I ran through the blender.
The carrots are great for adding to soups. They’re also really good for munching just as they are. I also love to soak them to partially rehydrate them, then use them for pumpkin spice muffins.
The mushroom powder is so good. Adding a bit of it to gravy really makes it good. I don’t use it with all gravy but I especially like to add it to gravy when we have hamburger steak in gravy.
The powdered carrot tops will be used in place of parsley or in smoothies. I do have several quarts of dried carrot tops that are not powdered.
The sliced mushrooms will also go into soups, gravies, and I can rehydrate those and use them in any dish where I would use fresh mushrooms.
