National Potato Day

National Potato Day is a day to celebrate and enjoy a few potatoes. The versatile spud can be enjoyed in some way for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and as a snack. While it can be eaten raw, it is usually cooked, boiled, baked or fried. It is used in countless recipes. Americans can't seem to get enough of them.

Potatoes are one of the largest vegetable crops in the world. They were first cultivated in Peru, around 5,000- 7,000 BC. Pardon the broad estimate, but records were sparse back then, often written on the inside wall of a cave. While most potatoes grow to about the size of your fist or less, the largest potato ever grown, weighed in at 18 pounds, 4 ounces. Now, that's a whole lot of french fries!

In celebration of National Potato Day, make certain to include potatoes at every meal today, and for snacks, too!

Happy National Potato Day!
