Today is St. Patrick’s Day and a great day to remember all things Irish, and there isn’t anything more Irish than potatoes.
There aren’t many foods that can claim a historical event started with them, but the potato can. In 1845, a blight ruined most of the potato crop in Ireland causing the Irish Potato Famine and the death of 750,000.
Today, potatoes are the number one vegetable crop in the world and Americans eat more potatoes, pound for pound, than any other vegetable.
Potatoes are a very good source of vitamin C with over 26 percent daily value. They are also a good source of B vitamins, potassium, manganese and dietary fiber. One medium baked potato has about 130 calories and is almost fat-free.
