Astounding fruit and vegetables, 6: Purple carrots
These are the new "wonder food", apparently. An expedition went to Borough market yesterday to get them. You have to peel them to appreciate the wet purple that appears between the dark skin and the interior, which returns to normal carrot colour. The gradation of hues is similar to when peeling sweet potatoes but purple instead of peachy.
As you can gather from my previous vegetable pictures, I am a part time kitchen porter.
