Great little recipe.
Carrot Soup Recipe.
Take a close look at this recipe and you’ll notice a small, but important, detail. A detail which may seem minor, but underscores the scope of genetic engineering, selective breeding, and the industrial food complex in altering our mental image of a carrot.

Orange carrots were created not by the food industry but rather to celebrate the House of Orange in the Neatherlands
I’ve heard that story as well. Cool stuff.
I’ve never seen a red and yellow carrot. I do however make “Parrots” , steamed carrots and potatoes mashed the way you would potatoes with salt, and for those that can have it , butter and sour cream. Cooked carrots now just go in the blender hot to purée it into a thick soup.
