Have you ever seen purple potatoes? We got some, they were in a bag that said that they were proudly grown in Idaho. Who knew—they are purple inside and out! There was no photoshop enhancements involved…


They don’t taste purple. They do add a special something to a dinner plate and, if you have kids who are picky eaters, you could have a whole lot of fun with these.

I’m traveling to CA today to visit a friend and I am looking forward to it! There will be some sitting and stitching and visiting and eating of cake! I hope you have a similarly wonderful weekend :-).

  1. They sure don’t look the same all mashed up, do they? The kids would get a kick out of oven-baked French Fries! I’m from Idaho, and I’ve never tried purple spuds. But I’ll put it on my To Do List.


  2. Happy traveling – it is H O T  here!  Really hot!

  3. I have eaten purple potatoes several times–they are delicious! Our daughter who lives in Gunnison sometimes grows them in her garden. I have also eaten them at restaurants in Boulder.


  4. I’d be careful about eating Idaho potatoes unless they are organic. That place is the pesticide capital of the west! I know I live in Montana!
