Have you ever had purple potatoes?. I came across these in Tesco supermarket, and decided to give them ago.
As their name they are purple and when you roast them the colour just seem to deepen more. I roasted them with new potatoes so I can figure out and compare the taste between them.
I made a one pot roast by mixing up both purple and new potatoes ( parboiled )along with a few chicken drumsticks. For flavor I added fresh rosemary, a few cloves of garlic, lemon zest, and olive oil along with salt and pepper. Just roasted them and served with a green salad.
Taste wise, well, I think I like the taste of regular white potatoes than the purple ones . These were a bit more stronger in taste and you do get a rather strange after taste.well thats my opinion :)
