Black carrots! I mean... black carrots! Can you see them there? I have never seen black carrots in my life, but on an indulgent trip to Tony Ale (my favourite grocery store in the WORLD) I spotted these and had to take them home for experimentation's sake! Here's what I learnt about black carrots that night:
1. When you cut them open, they go from black, to a pretty purple middle layer, to a crisp white core
2. They taste exactly like orange carrots
3. According to one of my sisters, they are credited as being good for prostate cancer (?)
So there you go. Beautiful, shiny black carrots. Great in a stir-fry, FYI.
