Potato Types Week: Blues/purples

Blue and purple potatoes originated in South America and are now very popular in the United States. They have a subtle, nutty flavor and flesh which ranges from dark blue or lavender to white. Microwaving best preserves color, but steaming and baking are also recommended.

Potatoes USA has created a new series of seven videos, one for each of the potato types, starring celebrity nutritionist Katie Cavuto Boyle, RD.  In this video, Katie creates a Blackened Blue Potato Salad – you’ll find the recipe for this salad in the link below. Enjoy!
