“My son was looking at the Star Wars trailers for Revenge of the Sith tonight. So I thought I'd do a search for Star Wars Recipes and this is what I found on The Herald News site. Purple potatoes are the most fun to cook with as they turn a very light purple when cooked.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Fill a large saucepan two-thirds full with water.
  2. Add the salt.
  3. Cut the potato in half length-wise.
  4. Holding a potato half cut-side down, slice it lengthwise into one-inch slices.
  5. Bow hold the slices and cut across them in the opposite direction to make one-inch pieces.
  6. Add the potato to the pan.
  7. Repeat with the remaining potatoes.
  8. Bring the water to a boil and boil the potatoes, uncovered, until tender, about 10 minutes.
  9. Drain potatoes into the colander.
