Seriously I have gallons of milk, enough carrots to run a stables and a bonkers amount if broccolli. And probably more spuds than we can eat, although I can mash and freeze.
Suggestions before I end up buying a rabbit it something?!

I'd freeze the milk.

Mash and freeze the potatoes

Cut up the carrots and freeze

Broccoli soup and freeze.

Sorry, not very inspiring!

Don't think I've got freezer room for all of it.
Dh is away do I might just make myself a giant bowl if custard for dinner...

Rice pudding, potato dauphinois, carrot and chickpea salad with a leek and potato rosti. Carrot cake of course! Paneer cheese with the milk.
Broccoli, chilli and garlic pasta. Carrot Thoran. Roasted broccoli.

OOh, how do you make paneer cheese? I bloody love Mutter Panner.

Boil milk and add lemon juice, separate the curds using muslin and a for a recipe.

Rice pudding, and post it to me.

Winter veg soup, you can whiz it up very very thick and freeze, so it takes less freezer space, then add stock or onion water to thin it down at reheat time.

How do you freeze mash without water separating off it?

I just freeze my leftovers in a pot. The flavour gets tainted though, we use it as an ingredient in something with a strong flavour once it's been frozen, but in general I try not to freeze it.

Broccoli quiche?

Mrswellyboot Wed 26-Mar-14 10:08:47

Soup would be the way to go to use up loads
I have recently frozen mash- nothing wrong with it
Milk - bread and butter pudding?

Large vat of broccoli and potato soup, and carrot cake!

You could make yogurt by boiling the milk and adding a spoon of your favourite yogurt. Then use the yogurt as dip for raw broccoli.
