Purple Potatoes

I bought some Salad Blue potatoes at Borough Market the other day, and just ate them (roasted). I was surprised by how disconcerting I found the violet-coloured flesh. After a few mouthfuls, you get used to it, but at first, they look really unappetising. They just tasted like potatoes, though. If anything, they were on the bland side. Next time I buy heritage potatoes, I’ll pick them on the basis of flavour rather than novelty colour-scheme.

    hey! purple potatoes are cool! they look very good in salads with green peas and carrots. the colour combination is very striking and attractive.

    They were certainly pretty spectacular looking. They just took some getting used to.
