Baked, mashed or fried … they are good

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. We can’t seem to get enough of them.

Potatoes are one of the largest vegetable crops in the world. While most potatoes grow to about the size of your fist or less, the largest potato ever grown, weighed in at over 8kg, now, that’s a whole lot of french fries!

In celebration of National Potato Day on August 19, make certain to include potatoes at every meal today, and for snacks, too!
