I havent ever made pea soup so cant help you there.

But I do live in TN. and have buried both parents and I never heard of the viewing flowers afterwards. May be a family thing.

Hugs, Jackie

It seems they are changing how funerals are done.

I am not a great slow cooker person.. I am the only one in the world that can burn things with them. I know others that have them on all day....I wouldn't want to eat what was in there after that many hours.....that said, carrots have a lot of sugar, so would probably burn faster than other things. If it don't taste bad it should be ok. But I would say the carrots could cause it to scorch faster if they were big pieces...

I always grate my carrots and do it on top of the stove.....

The funeral thing must be an area thing....people around here after the funeral go have lunch at the church and go home... I would feel unsettled knowing that I have people standing over me saying they would have put the yellow flowers with the white ones and not by the red ones.....I at that time wouldn't care I would be dead......LOL........

Maybe some kind of oxidation, the way ground meat turns brown when exposed to air.
