More or less than meets the eye?
Isn’t it odd how our eyes have decided that certain colors mean certain things? For instance purple/blue generally indicates something sweet like blueberries or perhaps plums. But take a closer look at the photo; that’s nothing sweet, those are mashed potatoes. Purple mashed potatoes.
You might remember that a few weeks ago I made a batch of pink mashed potatoes from red potatoes that are red fleshed as well as red skinned. This week I bought purple potatoes. Again, they have purple flesh as well as purple skin. When they are first cooked they are still deep colored but as I mixed in butter, milk and sour cream they turned a lighter shade of violet.
Top them with a spoonful of sour cream and some bacon crumbles and what appears to be blueberry ice cream with whip cream and nuts turns out to be a savory treat.
