There is no blue food

I was glad to find a blue dish in this house, since the "blue" food I made is actually not blue at all.

I finally whipped out the Pancake Puff maker (also known as an aebleskiver), and experimented a little. I only had two large blue potatoes, so I decided to do a trial run with some sweet potato. Turned out good, and figured out the perfect flame to cook them without making a big black puff. So then I make a blue potato pancake batter. Still blue. I drop the batter into the pan,

See how it's blue, but once it starts to cook, it turns a teal color? God dammit.

Then I pour on the wild blueberry sauce, which has turned a rich merlot color. Sigh.

So, it's true. Blue food does not exist.
