"Patatas" is the world's most widely grown tuber crop, and the fourth largest food crop in terms of fresh produce — after rice, wheat, and corn. Known for its carbohydrate content, potato is a good source of vitamins, minerals and fiber. We simply love french fries, mashed and baked potatoes. It also mixes well with casseroles, soups and even just a simple side dish on any cuisine.

The easiest way to peel it is with the use of your ever-handy peeler. Or the harder way, peel it manually with the knife, just be careful not to slip it on your hand. Before cooking, you may soak peeled potatoes in a bowl of cold water, to avoid discoloration.
