You don't have to use the multicolored ones we found. Regular carrots work just fine. We found these in our organic section and neither one of us had eaten purple carrots. Needless to say, they tasted just like regular carrots, just purple. I was hoping for a something a little more dramatic but at least they were pretty.
Try these fries with a ranch dip.
Hope you enjoy!
