“Sometimes we forget what beautiful colors nature has given us. Fortunately, the farmers from the Andes mountains have preserved the wide range of colors, shapes and flavors of the original potato variety.” according to Gert-Jan, one of our food suppliers who recently went to Peru himself to taste the ancient culture.
Perupas is a collection of old potato varieties with special colors, shapes and flavors. From firm to floury and from a round, full taste with one potato to a slightly bitter and fresh taste with another. Perupas naturally contain many more antioxidants than regular potatoes. That makes them a wonderful product for guests who, in addition to tasty, also like to eat healthy.
The Perupas family has a few different potatoes. Some of these species are:
- The violet queen tastes slightly sweet, earthy and nutty with hints of beetroot. Nice and crispy as chips, fries or baked potato. When cooked, the color is retained. Make bright purple potato blinis.
- The blue star has a beautiful blue-purple marbling. Prepare this potato in the skin or add acid for better color retention. Very refined in lukewarm potato salad. Double fun tastes slightly creamy and neutral. It’s a fairly firm potato. Blanching in acid gives a more intense color. Exciting with seaweed and salty vegetables.
- The Lily rose potato is a beautiful old pink colored with a fresh and light structure. This waxy potato has a slight bitterness. Bake in the pan, roast in the oven or steam in the skin. Beautiful in vegetable dishes with, for example, artichoke, spinach and carrots.
