Novelty Carrots

Because regular old orange carrots just weren't good enough. Purchased at the Santa Barbara farmers' market. The orange ones were the sweetest; the white ones tasted like parsnips; the purple ones tasted like a somewhat flavorless root vegetable of indiscriminate origin. I wouldn't necessarily trust me on that, though, they probably all tasted exactly the same, it was my crazy expectations that skewed the results of this culinary experiment.
