Potatoes were first discovered by the Spanish in 1536 and were brought to America by colonists in 1621. Since then, potatoes have become one of the world’s most popular vegetables, grown in all 50 American states and in about 125 countries throughout the world.
Few Americans — if any — are unfamiliar with the vegetable and the vast variety of products made from it, such as chips, fries, hashbrowns, and more.
As a lunch or dinner side, potatoes provide nearly endless possibilities for cooking. As a memorable hobbit in a popular film once said, “Po-ta-toes. Boil ‘em, mash ‘em, stick ‘em in a stew!” Or fry ‘em, roast ‘em, bake ‘em whole and serve with sour cream, bacon and chives.
