Recipes to Celebrate National Potato Day
Feeser’s Food Distributors is celebrating Spuds this National Potato Day on August 19. We love potatoes in any way, shape or form. You can bake, fry or mash them to create the perfect snack, appetizer or meal. We like fries doused with malt vinegar and salt on the Boardwalk in Summer. And mashed potatoes with lots of cream and butter are one of our favorites on a cold winter night.
The potato has played a role in history from being cultivated in ancient Peru and Bolivia in 8,000 BC to becoming a food staple worldwide. The starchy root vegetables have many nutritious benefits, including vitamin C and more potassium than bananas.
Marie Antoinette once turned the popular vegetable into a style choice by wearing potato blossoms in her wig. The fashion choice aimed to persuade the French to welcome this new species into their farming and culinary ways of life. Potatoes continued to shape culture in unique ways with an introduction of the Mr. Potato Head toy in 1949. Kids everywhere started to view the potato as an entertaining figure with lots of personality.
There’s a lot to love and cherish about potatoes — this vegetable has impacted lives in more ways than one. Celebrate the almighty potato with these unique potato dishes and order online or contact us for products!
