Homage to the Potato

Roast it, boil it, bake it, fry it, grate it, mash it, pressure cook it! The potato is loaded with potassium, fiber, calcium, magnesium, copper, phosphorus, B6, iron, thiamin, niacin, riboflavin, vitamin C, and zinc. Why is it so surprising to discover that the potato is full of vitamin C?
Potatoes, whole grain pasta, beans! Don't give them a bad name! They are the staff of life!
