Carrot's catching fire
While on the phone this evening, my parents told me a story about my sister in law.
I guess that Mimi, my s-i-l, was trying to get ahead with making food for my niece, so she had chopped up some carrots and stuck them in the freezer so that she could just grab some out, pop them in the microwave and warm them up so that she could puree them.
Well when she put them in the microwave to warm them back up the started sparking them burst into flames.
My parents didn't believe it would happen, so Mimi grabbed some more carrots, and put them into the microwave. Dad said it only took 15 or 20 seconds for them to start flaming up.
Anyone have a clue to why Carrots burst into flames in a microwave?
