Purple Potatoes

Have you ever tried purple potatoes? It is most peculiar experience. They look all wrong, but they taste all right. I spotted them in the supermarket, and as I had the family coming round, I decided to give it a go. I baked them in the oven, and they cooked up beautifully, nice and fluffy, just like jacket potatoes should be, but they were most definitely very dark purple, like beetroot. With a dab of butter and a little persuasion everyone had a taste, and we all agreed that if you didn’t look too hard as you ate, they really were a great flavour.
So if you haven’t tried them yet, give it a go!

  1. I love purple potatoes. Well i seem to love all purple food so got very excited when I first saw these about 2 years ago. They don’t make very good chips unfortunately but are great mashed and baked.
