Nothing motivates my daily cooking more than trying to find ways to use something before it goes to waste. I find a weird sense of satisfaction from cobbling together ingredients to make a meal. But damn if it isn’t close to impossible to find ways to use carrot tops. People go on and on about how they can be easily tossed into this or that but it tastes like rabbit food to me. It wasn’t until I started growing carrots myself (and therefore hated throwing the greens away that much more) that I became motivated to keep them out of the compost pile.
