We have been getting a ton of potatoes from our CSA, and as I looked at the pretty little red and blue/purple potatoes, I decided I needed to do something that showed off their colors. I just cut several of them in half and boiled them, then scooped out the centers. I wasn’t sure what to fill them with and thought about several different things, then thought, “why not fill them with themselves?” Kind of like a deviled egg. I decided to separate the blue and red potato filling and am glad that I did. When I tried mixing the ingredients in the blue potato mash, it turned an ugly muddy color. So I used a couple whole red potatoes (no skin) to make enough filling. These are perfect pupus (appetizers) for a party, a great snack, or side dish. Once we even had them for a small dinner! They’re also a great substitute for potato salad at a BBQ.
Another really fun colorful thing we’ve been getting is beans! We pick pretty much all we want. I pickled two pints a week and a half ago. I’ve been waiting to post it so I can taste them and make sure it’s a good recipe. Don’t want to reccomend something I haven’t actually tried! Anyway, I put a jar in my fridge today, and will give them a try and hopefully have a great post about them for you Friday or Saturday. Joining a CSA is the best food decision we’ve ever made!
