Last month hubby went grocery shopping, since I was up to my eyeballs in book writing. He came back with something old that was new - potatoes.
Old? Well these are Peruvian potatoes, not a man-made invention.
New? Certainly new on our supermarket shelves and...
We were all keen to try them and I, used to Rooster potatoes with their bright red skins, but ordinary potato innards, was expecting the colour to go no further than the skins.
Wrong! These guys are true blue all the way through!
I made mash out of them the first night. Here's the photo...
What were they like? Oh gosh... if you closed your eyes they tasted like... mashed potatoes. LOL BUT... if you looked at them, it was super weird. My eyes and my mouth had several arguments and hubby is adamant he is NEVER eating them again. It felt like I was eating play dough with my gravy. Just a little too odd for me.
I tried roasting them the next time, but a crispy blue potato just... well too weird for me! I think they'd be fun in a potato salad, but I'm not sure I'd buy them again. I've realised that I like looking at my golden browned potatoes as much as eating them.;-)
