Last night we made chicken in coconut gravy, sauteed green beans and Hawaiian Purple Sweet Potatoes, also known as Okinawan potatoes. The potatoes are native to the Japanese island, Okinawa and are a member of the morning glory family and are called ‘uala in Hawaiian.
Anywhoozle, I went to squeeze some lime on my chicken but accidentally aimed for the purple potatoes and they turned red... right before our eyes. I've been looking online as to what makes the potatoes turn into a mood ring of sorts with lime juice squirted on them, and have yet to find anything. We noticed our garlic turning blue when sauteed in lemon and butter before, but this is just wild. I'll keep you posted should I find anything... and if anyone out there has the answer... we'd love to hear it.
