Color Competition

Ever since the purple sweet potatoes showed up things have gotten colorful around the house!

Not only was I intrigued with the colorful sweet potato, but the whole family got into the act. What better time to have a “potato bake-off” then over the holidays, among the many meals shared with loved ones.

Our potato bake-off was all about the sweet varieties – but we did bake some regular old white potatoes too.

(…and no we did not have like 25 people over for dinner, we mash and freeze the leftovers!)

It was fun to see them all lined up and ready to go into the oven!

Stokes Purple – purple skin and flesh

Garnet- reddish skin and very orange interior

Idaho – we all know this staple of baking white potatoes.

Japanese (Kotobuki) – rosy skin with light yellow inside

They looked so pretty cut up and on the platter. By cutting them in half everybody got a chance to choose and taste the different varieties. And if you mash some of the varieties together – what a pretty bowl that makes – kinda looked like tie-dyed potatoes!

Everyone had their favorite – I just liked them all!
