Whittled Vittles - cute baby carrots

cut baby carrots oil painting still life

I seem to remember a time when carrots where long and muddy and some of them had leaves too. And they were somehow more carroty than the carved perfection of these cute carrots poured from a plastic bag. Or am I just getting old?

The old fashioned carrots are less convenient though Oh and the chlorine leaching slime story that does the internet rounds now and again turns out to be an Urban Myth - see for more than you ever wanted to know about the fascinating process of carrot whittling.

Now if they could just work out how to carve little faces and cute animals into the carrots wouldn't that be cool.

Question: Does the spelling Vittles (instead of Victuals) bug you? It is a legit spelling but it is an old one.
