Product of the week: Purton House Organics’ Purple Carrots


Purple-skinned carrots have a deep orange flesh and look unique, but this is actually the vegetable’s original colour. They look amazing in salads or simply steamed. Purple carrots are intensely sweet with a peppery twist, orange carrots are more earthy and quite sweet, and yellow carrots are smoother and sweeter still.
