I use the organic carrots which bought back by Lucas from his recent school day trip to a organic farm. The price of this carrot is three times more expensive than the normal carrot.
This recipe was adapted from both Jane's corner and My year on grill, butI I changed a bit as I did not prepare frosting and I don't have some of the ingredients in the original recipes.
