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.
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!
