Mexican Purple Sweet Potatoes
Particularly popular in Latin and Asian cuisine, the pretty purple tubers are in the same family as orange sweet potatoes. Along with their bright purple flesh, these potatoes have a richer, wine-like flavor compared to orange sweet potatoes, so not only will they beautify your dishes, they will also intensify the flavor. You can use these sweet potatoes wherever you use their orange siblings, but purple sweet potatoes are drier, so moist cooking methods and longer cooking times are recommended. Also, no baking soda--it will turn your potatoes green! Try baking a purple sweet potato pie or souffle; roast them into exquisite oven fries or stun your friends with a beautiful mash; or use them to create a dairy-free ice cream!
