When i was a kid my parents tried to get me to eat cooked carrots by telling me that the middle was the “candy part”. And some part of me to this day believes that the middle of a carrot tastes different than the rest of it, just because i never really think about it.
But when I do sit here munching carrots and remember that, I’m like “heh, what a stupid idea”
even as I retain a nagging suspicion that I can detect some difference in flavor when i isolate the center of the carrot and chew on it.
What do you still believe, against all evidence to the contrary?
