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.

Strawberry Rhubarb Daiquiri & Ice Pops. I know you love strawberry rhubarb pie one of my favorites, I know I do! yum! This is such a such a unique way to celebrate both fruits. Rhubarb grows like crazy this time of year if you have never had it its like celery stalks you will defiantly need to strain it its very stringy. Strawberries are the first fruit after rhubarb to ripen in spring and early summer. Strawberries are the most picked fruit in the United States and, there are 600 varieties that grow here in the United States alone.
During the time of the Spanish-American War, in 1898, an American mining engineer by the name of Jennings Cox created the drink to protect his workers from yellow fever. According to Bacardi archivist Juan Bergaz Pessino, both the lime and alcohol were thought to protect against the deadly disease.
The cocktail was further made famous at Hotel Venus in Santiago de Cuba, where it was christened in 1932, and Feliza Bar in Havana.The Daiquiri was introduced to the United States in 1908, when a U.S. Navy medical officer brought the recipe from Cuba back to the Army & Navy Club in Washington, D.C. It experienced a rash of popularity from the 1940s through 1960s.
Now you can bring a lit of the Tropics home to you wherever that might be. I hope you have fun making this!

2 cups fresh frozen strawberries
1/4 cup lime juice
6 oz white rum
2 oz strawberry liquor
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
2 cups chopped rhubarb
2 Rhubarb stalks garnish (optional)
The first thing you should do is cut your rhubarb stalks and put them in ice water, then set them in fridge for use later. Next place sugar, rhubarb and water in a sauce pan cook until rhubarb is very soft. Cool, blend in blender and strain. With your blender add remaining ingredients! You can add them to your ice pops and pour yourself a glass or skip the ice pops and share with your friends! The garnishes take 2-4 hours to curl. I also used line and fresh strawberry for garnish.
if you do not use fresh frozen strawberries you will need to use 2 cups of ice. I always find using frozen fruit instead is a good idea. We freeze our fruit from fresh.
