I feel like it has real potential. I mean, purple and orange? Come on. That is so halloween. We’re talking about purple carrots, by the way.
I got a few purple carrots in my Abel & Cole veg box this week, and it immediately struck me that they would be awesome for Halloweeny things. So I just sort of wanted to tell you about them, plant that idea in your mind too, you know?
I’ve done a li’l bit of research on purple carrots and it turns out that purple is the original, proper carrot colour. Who knew? According to this internet situation, all carrots were purple before the 17th century. Did you know that? I had no idea. Why did they turn them orange? Purple is so much cooler? I have so many questions.
Apparently they also have a “higher antioxidant capacity” than orange carrots. Do you know what that means? I don’t.
The most important thing is, they taste good and they look kinda witchy, don’t you think?
You could grate them, roast them, spiralise them, whatever. I think they’d be really cool served raw with a fancy dip of some kind if you’re hosting a Halloween party this year, and I know for a fact that they look badass as part of a salad – recipe coming later this week.
I hope this short and sweet post has provided some Halloweeny inspiration for you. If you want more of the same you can check out my Halloween-spiration post from last year!
What are you up to for Halloween this year? Tell me, tell me!
