I just can't get enough of these bad boy carrots!
The carrot (Daucus carota subsp. sativus, Etymology: Middle French carotte, from Late Latin carōta, from Greek karōton, originally from the Indoeuropean root ker- (horn), due to its horny shape) is a root vegetable, usually orange or white, or red-white blend in colour, with a crisp texture when fresh. The edible part of a carrot is a taproot. It is a domesticated form of the wild carrot Daucus carota, native to Europe and southwestern Asia. It has been bred for its greatly enlarged and more palatable, less woody-textured edible taproot, but is still the same species.
This lovely pumpkin soup, Crema de Zucca, sadly contains no carrots, but it could be garnished with some bright fresh shreds & it is from a great website, "The Jew and the Carrot."
