Have you seen potatoes more beautiful than these?  For our Sunday dinner, we bought a small bag of heirloom potatoes and they were well worth the extra money.  They taste like normal potatoes but the fun I had photographing them and their exquisite color on a white plate is not to be rivalled.  Perhaps they will be a must have for Thanksgiving dinner.  I wonder what purple mashed potatoes would look like?

    So, how did you prepare those? and did they taste the same as a white potato?

  2. Caitlin says:

    Did they keep their bright color after they were cooked?

  3. Meghan says:

    Yep, they tasted just the same as white potatoes so we oven roasted them with olive oil and garlic. They did keep their beautiful color even after being baked.

    Where did you find them? They would indeed look beautiful on a Thanksgiving table.

    We got them at Costco in a 5lb bag as an heirloom potato mix, so there were some other varieties as well but the purple potatoes were the most lovely.
