About the Holiday

National Potato Day celebrates these inexpensive, easy to prepare, and versatile root vegetables. Potatoes come from the Spanish word patata and contain more potassium than bananas, a significant amount of vitamin C, and are a good source of vitamin B6. China produces more potatoes than anywhere else in the world.

There are endless ways to cook potatoes. Some of the more common ways people make and eat potatoes include mashed, baked, as French Fries, home fries, whipped, fried (often with peppers or onions), scalloped, in a stew or soup, twice baked, or roasted.
