Carrots as they used to be.

Them as knows say that until the 17th century, all carrots were purple. Its only selective breeding since then that has turned them orange. Here is a picture of the purple carrot I bought from Greensmiths in Waterloo, London today. They call it a “heritage variety”.


It went in the stir fry and cooked beautifully.


It looks pretty too. Greensmiths also has a Ginger Pig butcher in it. Standby for a report on ultra-low temperature roasting of a Ginger Pig 50-day matured rib of beef!!
carrot museum!!
