Carrot tops - to keep or not to keep.

Last night I lopped off the green leafy-ness of a few carrots and thought to myself, "I should keep these for something." However I couldn't figure out what that something was so I 86'd them (threw them away). Should I keep them for stock or mirepoix (sp?) or for basket weaving or hat making?

I'm sure they are useful in some way. Suggestions are appreciated.

  1. As long as you don't let them move to Vegas and become prop comics. Har Har!
