Weekly Photo Challenge: PURPLE (2)

Spectacular among vegetables, this regal cauliflower:

Photographed at the Lenox Farmer’s Market. (But after being cooked, it simply tasted like any cauliflower, white, yellow or purple.)

    What a beautiful shade of purple – it certainly stands out!

  2. pauline says:

    Purple cauliflower’s color is due to the antioxidant anthocyanin, which is also found in red cabbage and red wine. Who knew? With a side of purple potatoes and a Cherokee purple tomato, you could have a monochromatic plate and still eat healthy!

  3. These colors look more delicious, even if it doesn’t change to taste. Not one of my favorite foods, but if you mash them with cream cheese – well, how bad is anything with cream cheese?

    It may taste like “any other” cauliflower, but a standard issue it is not. Beautiful!

      Standard? No. Rare? Yes. I haven’t seen one in ages! If I do, I’ll buy it like a shot, pose it, shoot it, cook it, and then taste it — VERY CAREFULLY!

  8. love cauliflower and that purple is gorgeous, just gorgeous.

    Great shot. I have never ever seen a cauliflower in purple. Thanks for sharing it.

  10. I have never seen a cauliflower like that before!

  11. What a glorious shade of purple! I’ve never seen a purple cauliflower before and would definitely love to try it one day. I’m sure it would add such wonderful color to any meal.

      It’s been so long since I had one I forget how much it fades in cooking. It does, you know —
      What it really does is make a fabulous table decoration until it ages and is ready for the pot.
