Adirondack Blue Potato

adirondack-blue-potatoes-transYour purple potato has the blues. It has the “purple all day and all night” blues. Adirondacks have been developed to keep their crazy color. The side benefit of being blue? It’s good for you. Purple and blue potatoes contain the antioxidant anthocyanins.

Preparation Tips

Skin contains many of the antioxidants this potato is valued for, so ideally use un-peeled. Scrub potatoes and slice into wedges if baking, or boil. Vibrant color will fade some in cooking - but still purple enough to think about color combinations like contrasting it with bright green fresh parsley.

Storage Tips

Store potatoes in dark, cool place. Let them have air, do not keep in plastic. Organic potatoes are not treated with sprout inhibitors; if they do sprout, remove "eyes" with a knife tip.
