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!!
