Make paper out of them.

Well maybe it looks kind of so what here but
the color is great especially when light comes through it.

And no guilt for forgetting that somehow you have carrots past their prime
aging away in the fridge.

And hoping for an early death you swam so far you lost your breath, and struggling in the ebb and flow I took your hand, but you let go...
And now the ocean fills your lungs, and now you've got what you had come for, resting peaceful as you sink to drown under a sea of strangers.

Thanks for the appreciation!

wow, that's nifty.  is it write-able?  and how brittle is it?

It's not soft but it doesn't break or crumble if if you touch it which is how I think of brittle. It's really thin and flat.  You could write on it maybe even with a soft pencil -an HB, or a marker.

Here's how it's done.
Supplies
2 pounds (1kilo) carrots
newspapers  or papertowels
Old towels or rags
2 pieces of plywood
C-clamps or whatever else will hold the wood together hold

Instructions
Boil or otherwise soften about two pounds of carrots.
Slice the carrots into 1/4 " (8mm) pieces.
Put a few pieces of newspaper on one of the boards
Put a towel/rag/diaper on top of the newspaper and
layer your carrots on top of that.
Make sure that your carrots overlap slightly.
When you're happy with your layering put a cloth
and some more newspaper on top of it.
Place the second board on top.
You now have a board sandwich with newspaper, cloth, carrots,
cloth, newspaper in between.
Clamp the board tightly on each side.
If you don't have clamps use phone books or anything heavy.
Wait a day.
Open it up and replace the wet newpapers and cloth with dry ones.
Wait another day and replace the papers and cloth again..
After two or three days of this you will have carrot paper.
Admire your carrot paper.
Take a picture or scan it.
