Royal Purple Mash

This is actually yam ice cream.

I’m kidding.

It’s your good ol’ mashed potatoes, gone wrong.

  1. Get a bag of purple potatoes from your supermarket, or backyard (if you grow them). Peel the skin off with a speed peeler. Be careful not to slice your skin off while you’re at it. I’m just saying. I didn’t slice my thumb.
  2. Boil them till soft in a pot of water on the stove. Marvel at the water turning into a deep teal colour.
  3. Once soft enough, drain and mash away.
  4. In a mortar and pestle, crush a pinch of dried thyme.
  5. Add the crushed thyme, to the mash, together with freshly ground sea salt, black pepper, a small knob of butter and cream or milk.
  6. Serve to puzzled yet excited guests.
