Carrots, Purple

Carrot, Purple (cut)(Carrots, Purple) We found it very interesting that the purple carrot was probably around for 4-5,000 years. Purple was the original color of carrots, and the orange carrot that is common today, wasn't developed until the 17th century in the Netherlands. We found that the taste of these purple carrots is similar to the orange variety. We have only seen them available from some farm stores. We could not find any nutritional information specifically for purple carrots, so see the nutritional information for Carrots. To the right is a cross section of a purple carrot.

Vegan FlagThe above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31): 'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV) Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
