They are back.
The elusive, the mythical, the one other time I found them I spent 20 dollars on them. Purple sweet potatoes;)
The last time they were at Kroger was around Thanksgiving. THANKSGIVING. That is quite a long time to go without such a fantastic food.
Naturally, I bought every single one that I could find at Kroger. They are currently sitting in my fridge, just waiting to be devoured.
For those of you who have never had a purple sweet potato, they are like a sweet potato, but better. They are denser, sweeter, and look much cooler. THEY ARE NOT THE BULK PURPLE POTATOES. Purple potatoes and purple sweet potatoes are two very different things. One is sweet, the other just tastes like a potato, plus it turns blue after you cook it. Imposter.
My favorite way to enjoy these babies is baked in the oven at 400F for one hour. After that I smother it with peanut butter and cinnamon. It warms me up, which is something MUCH NEEDED after the current snowstorm which had trapped me in my house, and it is such a treat.
Have you guys ever had the wonderful privilege of having a purple sweet potato??
