~Purple Carrots~


Here's something I just couldn't resist sharing......
I was slicing Purple Carrots and noticed they looked just like Hexagons.....
I thought they were just gorgeous and cute.......and the colour was so rich
All purple and orange!!!!

I did a little research and found out that carrots used to be purple before they were bred orange...
To read more about this go over here

I love them whether they are purple or orange!!!

THERE THEY ARE! Oh, and the shape, how weird is that! I find that the patterns in nature are very interesting, like a diamond in the rough that is always octogonal, a pineapple upon which you can find the Fibonnacchi pattern and so on! I do wonder how these would come out in a carrot cake! Happy baking/cooking dearest Dzintra! LOVE, Anita
