The earliest carrots were not orange, but in fact Purple!

It was not until years of domestication, that orange carrots became the Norm.

Terrific for juicing

Fresh carrot juice is one of the best natural medicines for colds, viruses & teenage acne

Direct from Ohakune

Studies have found that these blue & purple pigments can improve memory, enhance vision, protect against heart attacks, act as anti-inflammatories, & even help control weight.

High in Vitamin A, can lower cholesterol & a good source of fibre

Buy carrots without the greenery still on them, otherwise those pretty leafy tops will act like nutrient vampires sucking out the vitamins & moisture before you can eat the carrots.

Carrots pair well with mild or strong flavours... use spices like; cinnamon, cumin, coriander, ginger, nutmeg & paprika, along with herbs: dill, fennel, parsley, rosemary, sage, thyme, basil & garlic
