    Cookgirl's Note:

    I scored on 'Purple Majesty' potatoes last weekend at the local farmer's market. Here is a very simple recipe from Chef Michael Anthony via smittenkitten.com. From the site: "There’s a new potato in town, and not only is its flesh a rakish shade of purple that even Prince might find a little loud, but it’s also really good for you. The potato was developed last year by Colorado growers using natural cross-breeding techniques that somehow resulted in a superspud containing freakishly high amounts of antioxidants." There's a surprise in store for you, too...read on...

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Note: If you prefer, the potatoes can be boiled first in their skin then peeled.
    2. 2
      Bring a large pot of salted water to boil and cook the potatoes until tender, approximately 25 minutes.
    3. 3
      Drain.
    4. 4
      Place the potatoes back in the pot and using a fork, mash the potatoes.
    5. 5
      Fold in the remaining ingredients, sprinkling the lemon juice on top of the potatoes last.
    6. 6
      Did you notice what happened? The citric acid in the lemon juice "bleached" some areas of the potatoes a "lighter and brighter" shade of purple! Nifty, huh?!
    7. 7
      This concludes this week's science experiment.

      These are excellent. Love the brightness the lemon juice adds. Easy to make too!
