Did you know that the beautiful Queen Anne’s lace blossoms beginning to ornament fields and roadsides everywhere are really wild carrots?
Pull one up and sniff at the root, and you will recognize the familiar carrot smell.
The root you are holding is white, but it will be as edible as the familiar yellow ones. You will have to cook it a little longer than the familiar garden variety, but it will taste just the same.
Carrots are related to parsnips, caraway and parsley and combine well with all of them.
