Potatoes are considered an important staple food and the number one vegetable crop in the world. Because of their neutral starchy flavor, they are a good complement to many meals. They are available year-round as they are harvested somewhere every month of the year. Potatoes are thought of as a comfort food whether they are mashed, baked or made into French fries. There are over 100 varieties of edible potatoes.
Do not store potatoes in the refrigerator as their starch content will turn to sugar. Store them in a cool, dark closet in a paper bag to maximize their quality and storage.
Potatoes are a health-promoting food and contain vitamin B6, vitamin C, fiber and potassium.
