This week there was a lot going on in my kitchen. As I said last week I really wanted to try and use as much of last year’s harvest as I could from my pantry or freezer. I did not do as good as a job I wanted to. Part of that was that I only remembered that I was trying to do that on Monday night...lol Oh well
I did use cauliflower, sliced carrots, shredded carrots, green beans, onions, salsa, vegetable soup and tomato sauce this week. So I did make a wee little dent in all of 2011 harvests. However, all of that was just from 2 days....LOL So this week I plan on being a little more proactive in trying to use up last year’s harvest.
One of the highlights from the kitchen this week was the carrot and bran muffins I made. I wanted to try and use honey instead of sugar. The end result is they taste like they need sugar, but I think natural honey is a bit better than brown sugar.
Here is the recipe that I got from the Bee Maid Honey Website
Carrot Bran Muffins
1tbsp baking powder
1tbsp baking soda
1 1/3C bran
2c grated carrots
In a large bowl sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Stir in bran, carrots and raisins. In a separate bowl beat honey, eggs, milk and oil
Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the liquid. Stir until just moistened. Spoon mixture into grease muffin tins, filling 2/3 full. Bake at 350F for 20-25mins. Make 24
