      Yum, I love carrots, but carrot pudding? Will have to try, without the raisins, this week. Also need to use up a bunch of sweet potatoes and even more regular potatoes. A friend gave us a HUGE sack of potatoes. Any recipes?

      I have never had a carrot pudding but no reason it would not be great. When I saw the suet ingredient I thought to myself that this must be a very old recipe. Am I correct? I seem to remember my grandmother using suet in some type of pudding many years ago.

      Just Ask Susan, you'll like the carrot pudding. Some are savory, eaten like a vegetable. And some are sweet, eaten like a dessert. Thanks for stoppinb by and thanks for the comment.

      I just bought a ten pound bag of carrots because they were cheaper than buying the two pound bag. This hub was a great find. Thanks so much. I am looking forward to trying carrot pudding something new that I have never had before. It looks very good!
