Purple Mash


Purple Mash

I like making roasted potatoes using both white and purple potatoes and the presentation they make are great.  So I was thinking, why not make a purple mashed potatoes?  So I decided to give it a try, I combined 6 small white potatoes with 4 purple potatoes and made mashed potatoes just as you would normally made them.  The results were less purple than I was hoping for and when I make this again I think I will use a ratio of 6 purple to 4 white potatoes.  My creation came out lighter blue/grey.  They may not look pretty but they sure did taste good.  There is nothing wrong with experimenting.  Happy creating.

Ingredients:

White potatoes, peeled and halved

Purple potatoes, peeled and halved

Pepper

Butter

¾ cup of milk

Directions:

Boil the potatoes until they are tender.  Drain the potatoes into a colander and return the potatoes to the pan.  Put the pan back on the stove on very low heat for a couple of minutes to evaporate any left over water.  Add the butter and mash to the consistency you like.  Add milk, pepper and stir.  Top with butter.
