Do You Buy Purple Produce?

YumSugar Community member Lauren picked up a bunch of purple asparagus at the market, and her beautiful bounty reminded me of a San Francisco Chronicle article about violet-hued vegetables such as artichokes, carrots, potatoes, and cauliflower. Turns out a dazzling color isn't the only selling point: purple produce also contains anthocyanin, an antioxidant. I happen to love fuschia baby carrots and indigo-colored cauliflower. Where do you stand on purple produce or, for that matter, any vibrantly-colored vegetables?

I have never seen such things! But I have bought purple grapes, so I can't say I've never bought purple produce before!

I tried purple cauliflower once. It was pretty good, actually. I'd like to try purple asparagus, but I haven't had much luck finding it by me.

Typically, the more colorful the veggie, the more nutrients it contains. I would definitely try purple veggies!
