Q and A: purple carrot, powdered cheese, removing air bubbles before canning — 3 Comments

  1. Pinetree Garden Seeds ( and Baker Creek ( both have a purple carrot called Cosmic Purple. It is purple on the outside and orange on the inside. I have got some of these seeds planted but I can’t send pictures until harvest. Hope this helps!

  2. Love your column Jackie. I have learned the addictive habit of pressure canning from you. Purple Haze carrots are available from Fedco Seeds also of Maine. pretty and good.To get a catalog 207 426 0090 or order online at Good variety and lots of organic and heirloom seeds. Great prices quality and service. Happy Growing.

  3. The purple carrot seeds are available through Johnny’s seeds in Maine, they have a wonderful selection, and a nice catalog to order from, they also have the rainbow variety, I grew some last year and have a nice mild flavor too.
