A beautiful coloured alternative to regular sweet potatoes. They are denser and drier than the orange variety. The natural purple colour is from the same pigment that gives other fruit and veg their red/purple colour – also a healthy anti-oxidant.
They will cook a little slower than regular sweet potatoes but you can use them in much the same way, boiled, mashed or roasted. Try cutting into wedges, drizzle with some olive oil (try Theon Nectar’s Extra Virgin Olive Oil) and place in the oven.
Wash before eating.
* Like us, not all fruit or vegetables are perfectly formed. We don’t believe in discriminating against misshapen carrots or imperfect potatoes and in fact, love them for their flaws. A less than round apple is still as tasty as their perfectly formed cousins. Unless your produce is clearly defective, please accept them as Nature intended.
