Blue Chips



A long time ago I used to be a day manager at my big blue store, I ran the home and garden depts, go figure eh? Me and housewares! When it came time to order seed potatoes for the next season I saw these blue potatoes and knew that My store had to sell Blue potatoes. My store general manager was not a fan of this non proven item. I ordered several hundred units and crossed my fingers. Not having a garden and not being able to contribute to the sales of this risky item, I was nervous. The day they came in, 8 months later, I did a large display and watched them sell out in only a few days they were a hit, customers comeback year after year looking for them. I however never tasted them so when they came in my fresh box I was very excited. I decided to make fries out of them, I love yam fries and was told that these Russian Blue Potatoes were yamish. They turned out marv and just thought I would share this story with you.
