At the Market : Purple Fingerling Potatos

Back to the market! My last fun find at the Findlay Market was this parrot tulip, but now it's on to something edible... purple fingerling potatoes! They were nestled right in there with all the other potatoes that normally line the market shelves.

I think they are so beautiful! Did you know that purple is a naturally occurring color in lots of tubers? Carrots were naturally white or purple before they were bred into the orange tubers we eat today.

Does anyone have any favorite recipes for purple fingerling potatoes?
