Purple sweet potatoes, also known as Hawaiian sweet potatoes, are sweeter than their orange cousins. Every once in a while they'll be available in tiny chicken nugget sizes, and those have the best texture. Steam or wrap individually in foil, bake for 45 min - 1 hour at 375.


  1. I've had purple potatoes, but never purple sweet potatoes. Purple potatoes are weird because you expect them to be sweet, but they taste exactly like regular potatoes.

  2. The purple kind of regular potatoes don't seem to roast as well, most likely because they're typically waxy. But OH THE SWEET POTATOES. So much better than the regular kind!
