A special request from Charlie this week – he loved the carrot sticks and wants more! How can you refuse?
It has given me the chance to go back to the carrot recipe that I made before and re work it with all I have learnt so far.
I have used fresh carrots – grated – cooked – & pureed by me. It does take longer than using carrot puree but it get’s rid of a few more additives. It also gives the treat a bit of texture – which means that the edges of the cookie are more rough – but I like the home baked rather than machine made looks. I much prefer using fresh – so from now on all carrots I use will be cooked by me and not bought ready pureed.
I thought it would be fun to share where I get my ingredients from. I do try to shop local and fresh – and apart from the dry store (flours, tins, honey type stuff) – I don’t keep things for weeks.
This is Beenies stall in the market on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Good – solig – proper – wholesome fruit and veg at decent prices. When I got my veg for the week – I also picked up 3 carrots just to make the treats this week.
Yeah – most people in the town think I am a bit odd!!
