Super potatoes

We saw these beautiful purple and gold potatoes at the stall of Weiser Family Farms at the Wednesday Santa Monica Farmers Market. Their pretty coloring is only skin deep - the flesh inside is pale and starchy like a russet potato. The farmstand recommends them as a great baking potato.

What do you call purple and gold potatoes in Los Angeles?

Laker Bakers, of course!

Are you going to try some?

I love potatoes, but supposedly high blood pressure means I need to not eat many starchy things (potatoes, pasta, *sniff*).
