I don't know about that - they're a bit off-putting.
they are beautiful,, I'm not sure what my grand kids would think,,
potatoes? think they kinda look like passion fruits. any recipes? :)
They are stunning! Wouldn't they look fantastic mixed into a potato salad with white and sweet potatoes! Have a great week!
Oh my! I never thought there is such fruit as purple potato not until now. Thanks for sharing! :)Happy WW!
The color on those potatoes is quite deep! I didn't realize purple potatoes were quite that purple.
If you didn't say what they were, I wouldn't have known:@)
First time I have seen them. They look more like a fruit, I guess they taste much the same as plain old normal coloured boring potatoes, but cost a hell of lot more!
I love all the new colors in food. It seems to be the new rage. Yellow watermelon, purple and yellow carrots, yellow beets, white asparagus. Love them all.
@ William, they taste like a yukon gold to me anyway! No more than a bag of baby yukon golds or fingerlings I usually buy to roast.Seemed like a nice change. They do lose a lot of that deep purple color when you roast them. Be nice in a potato salad as Ocean Breezes said!
I love the looks of purple potatoes. Such a great way to add color to a meal!
Great photo! We love purple potatoes. Add a little honey thyme dressing to those and mmmm mmmm mmm!
What a gorgeous color! I'm afraid my husband would never eat them though, because they weren't the "right" color.
LOVE that color!!!
i've not seen purple potatoes. i wonder how it tastes like.
I have not had any of these yet but am going to get some because they look awesome!
Interesting. I haven't seen these in my local supermarket, but if I saw them, I'd have to try them!
I agree with folks who say these potatoes would look best in a potato salad or some other cold dish. Minnesota Vikings fans might like them any way possible!
They are pretty and they taste great too!
How beautiful!!! I've never tried purple potatoes before but they're so beautiful that I want to make some! I'll keep my eyes out for some at the grocery store. :)
ive never seen purple potatoes :0 I love the color though
its a nice shot submit ur blog in the blogger directory :http://bloggersworlddirectory.blogspot.com/
I have never seen these before they look awesome, would be interesting to taste them Have a good WW! & thanks for stopping by ;-)
Wow! I want to try purple french fries!
Love purple potatoes!
I used to get those in my CSA veggie basket and loved the color!
They are really pretty, and would be nice to have all different colors in potato salad, but I tried them once and I think one was bad and has kind of put me off trying them again.
Love the color! My older son refuses to eat potatoes now because I used to hide his veggies inside them. He might actually eat purple potatoes, though!
Now that's a first!Have a great day!http://harrietandfriends.com/2011/07/mr-squirrel-and-mr-duckie/
wow...they are really purple. But to they stay purple when you cook them?
Amazing. I've never seen them before.
Wow, that's a lovely shade of purple! I don't think I've ever had purple potatoes before (other than in a bag of chips!).
I've never seen purple potatoes before. I didn't even know they exist.
Oh wow --the first thing I thought of was Jet Blue's " Blue Terra Chips" snack! I always get them when I fly :)
This is the first time I've seen purple potatoes. Didn't know there was such a thing.Have a terrific WW. :)
Love the color. Bet Barney has them every night!I tried them once, thought they would taste different. They are more expensive than the others at the farmstands here, but fun once in a while. I never met a 'tater I didn't like!
Wow ! First time I've ever seen or even heard of 'purple potatoes' !! how do they taste ? The same as regular potatoes or a bit different ? (I actually thought it might be beetroot for a min) Hope you have a great weekend! Found you via #WW :)
It is the first time I saw a purple potato...that looks like a purple Yam...=)
I am seeing these for the first time. Wonder how they taste.
Gorgeous! Whenever I find purple/Viking potatoes, they're never THAT purple inside too...just streaky bits. Great shot too.
loved growing these with my students. so funky!
They are intensely purple and you've perfectly captured their color. Kudos. Have a great day. Blessings...Mary
Beautiful! I had to look twice to see what they were.
Beautiful purple! There's a restaurant that we like that makes mashed potatoes out of them in the winter. I have to tell you, depending on how they are piped, they are not the most appetizing sight - LOL.
At first, I thought they might taste like yams or sweet potato. Hmmm, purple french fries. :)
I have seen these in my market as well. would make for a colorful potato salad with white & gold ones in the mix.
Hi there,I LOVE purple potatoes! My husband and I discovered them a couple of years ago and we serve them a lot! Enjoy! xoxo Kim
I love the colour.
That is such a deep purple! Gorgeous!
Beautiful color! I love potatoes like these and I am always a little disappointed when they lose their color after cooking.
Don't you love that regal purple-y color? They taste just like a regular potato. The flesh turns almost black when roasted, but I refuse to be intimidated by a spud, no matter what the color :)
Interesting. I've tried them once - they taste like regular potatoes. Looks very nice on a salad!
your potatoes looks amazing, I didn't know that purple potatoes were so... purple!
