Weird science

Because I've been sick I've been using my cousin Sara's recipe of hot lemon and honey with fresh garlic and ginger in it (I highly recommend this btw, it really clears you out). The 'used' garlic subsequently went turquoise. That's right, turquoise. Does anyone know why?

Garlic contains anthocyanins which appears red in acidic conditions and blue in alkaline. Try exposing it to one of Tom's spleenier comics and it might turn back again.
