    Purple Potatoes

    Purple potatoes! this is an amazing side dish, easy and so good, as well as healthy! The purple potato is in the nightshade family the same as peppers and eggplant and tomatoes. The first of the purple potatoes originated from Peru and Bolivia. You might be asking well where can I get purple potatoes? Some regular grocery stores carry them, farmers markets and sometimes they come in a bag with multi colored potatoes usually small and round. They are available year round and are in peak season in the fall. They first became popular in the US in the 1980’s but were in South America and Europe in the 16th Century.

    The ones we are making today are roasted but you can also mash them. Please note they do have a unique flavor but are not sweet like a sweet potato.
