I had never heard of purple potatoes until 2016 when Don and I received some in our CSA veggie crate from the local farmer. Don grilled them, along with some zucchini and a couple of Grilled Lamb Chops, and we enjoyed a scrumptious dinner. We both LOVED the potatoes. Creamy on the inside, crispy on the outside. And gorgeous!
