Carrot is one of the most versatile root vegetables, they come in a variety of colors, the most common being orange. Around Thanksgiving time, they sell different colors, which help dress up the table, they come in a variety of colors, see if you can find them at your local farmer’s market or grocery store.
Colors that I have found:
Drop me a line and let me know which colors you have seen?
Carrots were originally found in Persia (Thank you Wikipedia) and originally they were eaten for their leaves and seeds. I am thinking about Carrot Salad, has anyone had that? I will have to put that on my list of things to make, although I don’t think I would need an air fryer or Instant Pot for that. I will post that recipe when I make it. What I found interesting from reading about carrots on Wikipedia is that every region or country has their own way of eating carrots. I will have to put them on my list of future recipes.
Now, the baby carrot industry was one of the best things that happened to carrots, who doesn’t love buying a bag of carrots and just throwing them into the Instant Pot or Air Fryer. Talk about a healthy and convenient recipe.
This carrot recipe can be made in a few minutes, it’s a simple recipe that goes with any meal. My kids love them and would eat them all the time, they have the right flavor balance, not too sweet, not sour.
I hope you and your family enjoy!
