Purple Majesty Potatoes


These potatoes are so pretty...


I made "Jo Jo Potatoes" with them the other day (a cross between oven-baked fries and chips)...



Wow - this picture came out really purple...


They fade a bit when you cook them - but they are a lovely light purple. Here I made an olive-oil based potato salad. The cilantro gives a nice color contrast (and tastes good too!) I wish I had some more potatoes so I could try making lavender mash or purple soup! Sometimes the unusual captures Picky's interest, although I'm not sure she'll go for the "green bits" - we'll see. Of course, I'll probably put cheese on her portion...kinda wrecks the color, though...
