Photo of the Day April 20th

I've been munching on the leftovers from our raclette meal for lunch over the past couple of days, and was just amazed by the colour of these baby potatoes. They have a lovely purple skin, and when I first cut into them during our dinner I was surprised that they weren't white-fleshed as I was expecting (I've had purple skinned white potatoes before), but purplish-coloured instead. Imagine my shock today when I cut into one to find it had deepened in colour to this beautiful, jewel-tone purple. How regal these little potatoes look! I'm hoping I can get a hold of more of them to make a soup with - wouldn't it be fun to sip on bright purple potato & cheese soup for dinner one evening?
