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.
White potatoes, peeled and halved
Purple potatoes, peeled and halved
¾ cup of milk
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.
