What to do with manky carrots

(One of my fave veg!)
OK, so not the really nasty ones but when they have gone a bit black but are perfectly OK inside, just a bit limp.

Apart from the usual soup, casserole, etc, this is what I did today.

I peeled them, being sure to cut off any bad bits.  I cut them into chunks.  I boiled a pan of water and cooked the carrots just for two minutes after which I dunked them in cold water.  After draining and drying, I separated them out on some easy-leave on a tray, covered them with more easy-leave and popped the lot in the freezer.

I will use them as needed, most likely to roast them for a Sunday dinner.  Much better than throwing them away!
