i get super excited when i see a rainbow on my plate. it just makes me happy to eat COLOUR!  and these wonderful bright purple sweet potatoes please both the palate and the eye.

i love how they grow in weird shapes, too.

have you ever had a purple sweet potato? i was first introduced to them many years ago at whole foods, as they tend to get the “cool” produce a lot. since then i have been seeing them in mainstream supermarkets and grocery stores, as well. unlike purple potatoes, these do not lose colour when you cook them.  in fact, they get BRIGHTER! it’s the coolest thing.

i like to make mine into mashed potatoes. they are great just baked, too. a friend of mine says he makes his into hashbrowns in the morning… YUM!

check out the colour of the water after boiling them! :

the right butter makes all the difference! – only pasture-based & grass-fed for me!
