Interesting Potato Facts

Potatoes are an interesting vegetable. They are high in potassium, carbohydrates, protein, relatively low in calories, a great source of Vitamin Band C, not to mention fiber and iron. They are the number one vegetable eaten by Americans and the one consumers order the most when eating out. According to the International Potato Center in Peru there are over 4,300 different varieties of potatoes in the Andes alone. Every year in America alone it is estimated that the average person consumes about 1440 each. That's amazing. Even more mind blowing is the fact that Europeans eat about twice that. So grab yourself a potato and enjoy.

Actually envy, I wrote this one because of a comment you wrote on one of my other recipe hubs. You had mentioned that you had gotten a huge bag of potatoes and wanted to know if I knew of any other potato recipes. That's when this hub was born.
