Seeing Purple

As in purple potatoes.

My friend, Jill, has these growing in her garden and she gave me several last week. I didn't think much about them until I scrubbed them clean to reveal the most gorgeous colored tubers.


Aren't they beautiful? The color reminds me of the eggplant, or aubergine, one of my favorite vegetables.

But these are beautiful on the inside, too:

So many patterns of what I'm calling "purple marble".

They cook up like regular new potatoes and I used them in a potato salad. Sorry, no pictures of the finished product, but the purple potatoes add a fun punch of color.


I'm sure you can find these at any specialty produce shop. Or grow your own (or be fortunate enough to have friends who share their bounty).

The first time I brought purple potatoes home my husband was pretty skeptical..until he tasted them. They are pretty and pretty darn good!
