Very creative bread.  Looks beautiful.  So how did it taste?  Do you taste the carrot flavor?

oh yes, purple carrot has a very different level of sweetness compare to regular orange carrot. and i added the grated carrot at 2nd stretch and fold. did a few squeeze technique before the SF. as you can see specks of clear purple rather than a cloudy one. if you come across any please do get some to try.

many purple Tasmanian carrots around here, but I will try to a find a purple variety to grow and see how that goes.  Love your purple specked bread!  Being a Silo Tech'er, anything purple is way better than anything not.... like a Jayhawker :-)

Nice baking.

Gorgeous loaf!  We get two-tone purple/orange carrots here in the spring, but if you cook them the purple vanishes- love the thought of a carrot that keeps its color through the bake.

never cook purple carrots before. i feel that it is a waste with all that antioxidate and beautiful vibrant color of purple. eat it raw most of the time. yes, i love that it keeps its color through the bake too!
