NATIONAL POTATO DAY TODAY AT THE VILLAGE KITCHEN…
Today in the US it’s National Potato Day but we thought it would be nice to celebrate in the UK as well.
Potatoes have been a popular food for centuries so it’s about time we recognize this versatile and ap-peeling favourite. Mashed, smashed, chipped, or covered in cheese, potatoes can be eaten with just about every meal — or as a meal! — making these starchy veggies a delicious and easy way to get iron, potassium and vitamin c. At over one-in-three people surveyed, McDonald’s is chosen more than any other fast food joint as the people’s favourite place for fries.
Did you know there are over 4000 different kinds of potatoes? It’s true!
Hashbrowns or potato salad, hot or cold, no matter how you slice them, potatoes have been a staple in diets all over the world because they’re easy to grow, tasty and relatively inexpensive to produce and buy. Nearly ever cuisine has potatoes in it.
Crisps are regularly regarded as the most delicious snack and we couldn’t agree more. Plus, there isn’t a better party food than crisps. Just pour them in a bowl and let the festivities begin! With crisps coming in more and more flavors all the time, you’ll never run out of ways to enjoy your favorite potato.
