Purple Mashed Potatoes

I saw these in our commissary and I grabbed them because I've never seen them before and I love experimenting with new foods! Turns out, they are quite popular, and quite loved! I kept hearing they are great when roasted, so I didn't listen and made them into mashed potatoes.


2 pounds purple potatoes, estimated 9-10 pieces
4 tblsp butter
1 tblsp rosemary
2 tsp salt

  • Boil potatoes until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain.
  • In a large kitchen-aid mixer, beat potatoes, butter, rosemary, salt and enough milk to make it right consistency.
  • Adjust seasoning to your taste!

If those are Okinawan Sweet Potatoes you should try Ube (it's them turned into ice cream... it's HUGE here in Hawaii and I would assume Oki).

purple potatoes are my favorite, they are not only beautiful and slightly weird, but also delicious!
(just like us, right??)
