All About Potatoes, Tips, Recipes and More

Potatoes in different ways

Welcome to All About Potatoes. If you have wondered what is so great about potatoes that people can't seem to get enough of them, you are in the right place. You see, like most people, I thought they were an essential part of a Thanksgiving dinner and nothing more. But I was wrong.

Unparalleled nutrition and delectable recipes make this versatile tuber one of the finest choices for your kitchen. Heck, if you want to, you can even use it to power a light bulb or remove rust from your old cooking utensils!

Potatoes are among the top 10 crops produced in the world, and there is a good reason for that.

They are a great source of amino acids, carbohydrates, vitamins and virtually no fat! Yes, you read that part right, potatoes are much more nutritious than most people think. As a matter of fact, you can live eating potatoes almost exclusively (as the main ingredient for many of your meals) and be completely healthy, of course, you can eat other stuff if you want. To be honest, potatoes are an essential part of my daily meals, and they can be part of yours as well.




Potatoes are a lot more than just another healthy food.

Ask yourself when was the last time you ate something that was healthy and tasted good. That's what I thought. The amount of good tasting dishes you can make with potatoes is just staggering. 

There are other uses for potatoes besides eating them, though. Believe it or not, they can even produce enough electricity to run an alarm clock (and no, you can’t plug in your TV to a potato). Furthermore, you can even create decorations with them; the possibilities are endless. I just simply can't imagine a kitchen without potatoes.

Getting your Potatoes

Finding the tubers isn't hard at all. You can go to the supermarket or the grocery store and buy as many as you like. You also have the alternative of growing them in your home. Buying potatoes at the supermarket is easier, but if you are a fan of organic foods or if you like rare varieties that are hard to get, growing them is your best bet. 

I know tending a garden may seem a bit daunting at first, especially if you have never done it before. However, once you learn the basics, it is fairly simple, and you will love cultivating your fresh organic potatoes that will save you plenty of cash.

Recipe Time

Who doesn't love cooking new and exciting potato recipes? I, for one, do. Cooking potatoes is simple. There is no complex science behind it; you just grab one or more and go for it. You can boil, bake, fry, steam, mash and roast them. 

You can prepare them in a few minutes (thanks to the microwave) or if you want them to be ready for a later meal, the trusty slow cooker can assist you well. 

The different potato recipes you can create are only limited by your imagination. Once you have some experience, you should try the more challenging dishes. Several of them, for example, require boiling and mashing or boiling and frying. If you combine them with vegetables, meats, fishes, or anything else you enjoy, you are going to prepare some memorable feasts.
