When I was in Waitrose on Tuesday, I spotted an interesting looking vegetable - the Blue Salad Potato:|
I'd never seen them before, so I bought some to try out.
The little label next to them in the supermarket suggested using them for mashing, so I decided to give that a try. I peeled them, and they really were blue all the way through. During boiling, they turned the water blue...
Mashing them resulting in a very interesting looking dish. It was very reminiscent of what you might find in sci-fi movies (think the green dish from the Vogon ship in HHGTTG, only blue). Still, I had a taste, and was very impressed. The mash was lighter in texture than a normal one, and had buckets more taste to it.
So, I think I'll be buying some more of these, even if it does scare other housemates when they spot the leftovers....
