Purple in the News

According to an article I just read, “White strawberries and purple potatoes are trends for next year’s gardeners.”

Don’t they look scrumptious?

The article states experts say that Purple Majesty Potatoes “are high in anthocyanin, an antioxidant which is   linked to potential health benefits in treating diabetes, inflammation and   age-related disease.”  Further, that they “are also versatile and can be roasted, mashed or made into chips.”  Growers report that they are also “particularly good as chips and crisps.”

I can’t seem to find any of these in my local stores.  Have any of you purchased any?  Have you cooked with them?  How did you find them?

Please share your grape experiences and have a GRAPE Day!
