Purple Majesty Fork-Crushed Potatoes

Purple Majesty Fork-Crushed Potatoes created by COOKGIRl

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

directions

  • Note: If you prefer, the potatoes can be boiled first in their skin then peeled.
  • Bring a large pot of salted water to boil and cook the potatoes until tender, approximately 25 minutes.
  • Drain.
  • Place the potatoes back in the pot and using a fork, mash the potatoes.
  • Fold in the remaining ingredients, sprinkling the lemon juice on top of the potatoes last.
  • 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?!
  • This concludes this week's science experiment.
