Adventures in Everyday Entertaining
You can’t have an Easter week without talking about carrots — what else will the Easter bunny eat?? 🙂
Carrots are a great and versatile root vegetable that finds a home in everything from soups to pastas to side dishes and beyond. It is also one of the few vegetables used in desserts! (And what is better than carrot cake?!?!) The most common variety is orange, but they also come in purple, red, white and yellow.
Fun Fact: Up until the Middle Ages, all carrots were purple. The orange carrots that we all know and love originally came from the Netherlands. (Source — The World Encyclopedia of Cooking Ingredients by Christine Ingram)
