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.
