National Potato Lover's Day
-- The word potato is derived from a Native American word, Batata. The first potatoes were cultivated in Peru in 5000 BC. Originally, they were purple, turning a deep blue color when cooked. Most of the nutrients found in potatoes are in their skin. The average American eats 140 pounds of potatoes per year. The word spud means to dig a small hole in the ground, similar to a spade, a tool to dig small holes.
