Purple Sweet Potato?!?

I was trying to use some produce before it went bad and I had a sweet potato in the fridge for a while. I baked it and thought we'd each have some "mashed" sweet potato with dinner (it was a big one). When I got it out of the microwave and cut it IT WAS PURPLE INSIDE. I thought that it must be bad and looked it up online; well apparently there is a purple sweet potato. HOW FUN! I didn't mash it well, but I did put a little butter and honey on it. It looked just like a regular sweet potato from the outside and I must have accidentally bought it or it must have accidentally gotten into the sweet potato stack at the grocery store. I hope I can find it in the future! The holiday menu just got a little brighter :).

Incidentally, the spinach salad behind it has mandarin oranges, almond slices, onion and a pomegranate salad dressing. Yum!
