Carrot Puree an ingredient for other recipes

For 1 cup of puree:  3-4 medium carrots (I used 4 large carrots and had 1 1/3 cups of puree)

-peel and chop carrots into smaller pieces
-fill pot with 1-2 inches of water, up to steamer basket
(or you can boil the carrots, instead)
-bring to boil
-add carrots, cover
-steam for 10 minutes (at least 10 min. -- my carrots chopped to bits instead of into a smooth puree, which is fine with me, but if I want a finer product, I should steam/boil longer).
-puree in a processor or blender, add a tablespoon of water to help it blend (if you cooked your carrots until they are mushy-soft, then you can use a potato masher if you don't have a blender/processor)
