Most people are familiar with the traditional, low moisture orange sweet potato. But what about its flavorful, lavender cousin—the purple sweet potato?
You can use the purple sweet potato in many of the same ways you’d use a regular sweet potato, but the striking purple hue adds a colorful twist to mashed potatoes, home fries, and soups (imagine a gorgeous lavender bisque). You’ll also find recipes for purple sweet potato ice cream, doughnuts, and sweet potato roll cake on our blog (see recipe ideas below). Its color is completely natural as it comes from the same pigment that makes cherries and strawberries red/purple.
Purple Sweet Potato Powder comes from the root vegetable of the same name and is only distantly related to potatoes. The origin and domestication of sweet potato is thought to
be either Central or South America.The purple Sweet Potatoes are dried at a low heat to preserve the vitamins, minerals and nutrients.
