Purple Potatoes

Purple Potatoes

I love them.  But, I don’t love the way they fade and bleed into soups and stews.  So, I tried something different.  I nuked them.  Three minutes for the first try.  And, then they went back into the nuker for another 2-3 minutes.  Cook til fork tender.  And, guess what?  When they were done, they still possesed the gorgeous purple color that I love.

Usually, my microwave oven is reserved for the sole task of making popcorn.  Now, it has two tasks.

Do you want to make it a bit heartier?  Add a handful of freshly boiled shrimp.
