    Wink ~Carrot Custard/Faux Pumpkin Pie~

    ~Last year I hit a sale on carrots 3lbs for .50, but more than I could eat. Well I had a craving for pumpkin pie but had no pumpkin. I figured if you could use pumpkin, sweet potatoes or squash for a 'pumpkin' pie you could probably use carrots. I may have stolen this idea from TWG, the book is huge, who knows. Anyway, I cooked them until tender then processed them in the blender. I let the mush sit overnight in the fridge and drained off and saved the liquid. I then used Libby's pie recipe(I used the liquid with dry milk powder to make evaporated milk and used less than recipe called for). Cooked up great as a custard and in a pie. The first day the carrot taste is strong but on day 2 I couldn't tell the difference except a grainy-er texture. I used about a 1/2 lb of carrots for one pie. So if you see a sweet deal and are feeling adventurous, try it out!~
