My favorite part about winter is the beautiful coloured carrots. Purple, pink, red, orange, yellow... they are amazing! There isn't really a difference in flavor but I think it's way more fun to eat them. Carrots are considered the second most popular vegetable in the world next to potatoes. They are filled with vitamins, and believe it or not are considered healthier slightly cooked. For more information go to the Carrot Museum on varieties of carrots and nutritional information.
