Here are today’s five thing to know about Carrot Cake:

  1. Carrots were first cultivated in north Africa & the Mediterranean. They originally were purple or grey in color. Introduced to Europe around 1000 years ago.
  2. The weed/flower Queen Anne’s Lace is actually a wild carrot. Many say carrots were planted in colonial gardens; went to seed & soon spread across North America.
  3. Jello in the 1930’s offered ‘carrot pie’ flavored gelatin.
  4. People first grew carrots as medicine, not food, for a variety of ailments.
  5. Carrots are one of the rare vegetables which are more nutritious cooked than raw
Daily Quote:  “I never worry about diets. The only carrots that interest me are the number of carats in a diamond.”
