Purple potatoes are native to South America and differ from their white counterparts mainly in their antioxidant content. Anthocyanin is the purple pigment found in grapes, blueberries, blackberries, cherries and other dark blue or purple food. Anthocyanin is more that a pigment. It actually has antioxidant properties. Antioxidants quench free radicals roaming around in our bodies that can harm our cells and organs. Plus all potatoes are an excellent source of potassium.
See how I made these delectable hash browns with an anthocyanin kick!
Step 1 - wash and cut up all ingredients. Keep the skin on the potatoes. There's a lot of nutrition in the skin.
