taking the goodness into winter

with 2 comments

I love carrots. Give me a bunch of local carrots and a bag of onions and there is always something for supper.


Keeping the goodness of our local produce into the winter months is a challenge. But this past weekend, I found dilled carrots still for sale at Cameron’s roadside stand just outside of Gagetown, New Brunswick. We also bought apples and a frozen apple pie.


Mom used to make these and they make a crunchy addition to a meal. Just carrots, vinegar, dill seed, garlic and salt.

  1. They look so good! I never thought to pickle carrots. I bet they’re wonderful. 🙂
    We’ll be making applesauce this weekend so that we’ll have apples well into winter and probably spring. M has also got some cider fermenting so he can warm up with some hard cider.

    • Hi Robin. Pickled carrots are crisp, a perfect accompaniment to a meal. Applesauce sounds good – the cider more so! So important we keep these ways alive! Jane
