Guess the recipe

Thanks, once again, everyone for all the nice comments about The Purple Carrot! Shout out to Melanie from Mommy Doodles Design who is my trusted blog designer, domain redirector, and question answer-er … she comes highly recommended by yours truly!

Speaking of purple carrots …

Carrot 2

We just got some purple carrot seeds in the mail! Can’t wait to plant them.  What better time to give you all a little info on the history of purple carrots??

Purple Carrots

  • Originally, carrots were mostly purple, red, yellow and white
  • The traditional orange carrot was developed by the Dutch in the 17th Century
    • It’s told that Dutch growers cultivated orange carrots as a tribute to William of Orange, who led the struggle for Dutch independence

So now you know!

We’re thinking about trying to grow these carrots indoors since we sure don’t want to wait until spring, but the package says it’s “not recommended” inside.  Hmm … we’ll see how it goes, ha.


Guess the recipe

Now I’m currently blogging as I wait for a tasty treat I just made to be ready to eat.  Let’s play a little teaser game of guess the recipe!
