wasn't white during WWII and how her granmother would add a little carrot 
juice to the butter for 'company' in the 1880's. >>
I seem to remember in the "Little House on the Prairie" books, Laura 
mentioning that they added carrot juice or something to the butter in the winter to 
make it yellow, because winter butter was white - apparently the color changes 
if the cows don't eat fresh grass or something.  Don't have the books here to 
check, unfortunately.
