    Have any of you tried these yet? Guess what I have and they are lovely. Grandad North spotted them in Asda and wondered if they really were purple inside. Yes they certainly are and they keep purple even after you have cooked them

    Guess what? they taste just the same as any other potato and if you were blindfolded when tasting the purple and white ones you would never guess which was which

    I have had two baked ones now for my lunch and have survived !!! I am looking forward to using them mashed and in potato salad. And guess what... so far Grandad North hasn't tried one. But you decide...... have a try they are delicious and are grown here in Norfolk. English produce at its very best.

    Ho ho ho that will teach me NN it's about purple spuds, they look maginificent will have to see if I can get some here. Thye would look wondeful in potato salad. Go on CC be a devil.:face-devil-grin:

    My sis in law grew purple carrots last year. I tried them and they were OK but I don't think I could cope with purple taters!

    Keeper of the hens

    I made mash a bit ago with them - it was a bit... unnerving but once you got past the strange colour they were fine!

    I've tried the carrots too - Asda sometimes sell a 'Colourful Carrot Selection' and it has orange, yellow, white and purple carrots.

    If ever CC gets her shots and braves coming oop North we could make her a totally purple tea :)

    REALLY???? I don't believe it! I went to the wedding of a friend, Jill, from university and it was the farthest North I have ever ventured. Beautiful reception in her parents big old house with silver band and fireworks which set off every car alarm for miles around...Jill moved to Heckmondwike and then Cleckheaton but now lives in Gildersome near her parents in a new(ish) house.
