Purple potatoes

My mom has cooked purple potatoes before, however I had never seen them in Germany and I knew Stefan had never tried them.

While they do seem to be a bit of a novelty, they are all natural and loaded with antioxidants due to their dark color. I guess I don't exactly need an excuse to eat potatoes, but it's nice that there is some kind of health benefit.

They are very similar to more traditional potato types and could easily be used in any recipe that calls for potatoes. The only difference I noticed was that these seemed to be more firm with a slightly different taste after I cooked them, but we really enjoyed them.

I've never tried purple potates. But any opportunity to have another purple vegetable, which are fairly rare, is great.

You'll have to keep an eye out in Stuttgart! Maybe you'll find some too.

I never seen a purple potato in my life. I didn't even know it exists.
