Before the 16th-17th century, almost all cultivated carrots were purple, with mutated versions occasionally including yellow and white carrots. Orange carrots are believed to have been cultivated by Dutch growers who took mutant strains of the purple carrot and developed them into the modern-day variety. At the farm, we grow a selection of unusual cultivars and in this recipe we’ve chosen to only use purple and yellow carrots, plus a small amount of orange!
Small amounts of this pickle are ideal with various Japanese foods and you might like to pair with some Junmai Sake. It’s also great with steamed fish or added to a salad.
