This is an old family recipe brought from England by my great great grandmother Eliza Griffin Andrews. You can make this all year long since carrots are in grocery stores and are inexpensive. In olden days people made this pie as a replacement for: sweet potato, squash and pumpkin because carrots matured earlier than the other veggies, they stored well in root cellars, and they prepared and cooked faster than the others. Enjoy!

*** What a great way to get kids to eat carrots!
