Purple Sweet Potatoes

Sara picked up some amazing purple sweet potatoes at the farmers market at Somerville High last weekend. (If you're missing the Somerville winter market, too, look out for the four "Spring Fever" markets coming to the Armory on Sundays in April and May.)

Jack sliced them on the mandoline to make some beautiful purple sweet potato chips.

For added snob appeal, we served them with homemade aioli (garlic mayonnaise), which came together very nicely in the food processor (sparing us the 40 minutes of hand-whisking described in the recipe), and brought my successful-mayonnaise-making average up to somewhere around 0.500.

The remaining potatoes made beautiful vibrant purple mashed potatoes. (Apartment Therapy has more purple sweet potato ideas.)
