Potatoes are highly nutrious having many useful vitamins and minerals. However they are also have a high carbohydrate content and eaten in excess can lead to obesity and poor spelling.
Potatoes come in many varieties. These range form potatoes good for boiling to potatoes good for chips or for roasting. Did you know that you can get blue, purple and orange potatoes.
Potatoes were first introduced to England in the sixteenth century as a smoking material, but soon were found to be much better for eating and filling in puddles as the Queen went by. The man who introduced them was Sir Francis Drake who after initial resistence to potatoes stumbled on tobacco and the rest is history. Drake's rival was Sir Walter Raleigh who was executed after Queen stood on his cloak and promptly descended into a deep hole full of water. This event led Drake to patent the potato as a hole filling device. The potato took off following the fire of London in 1666 when many holes got so hot that the potatoes cooked and gave of a delicious odour, thus leading directly to the Irish potato famine of 1840. The fire of london also led to the phrase to have "had your chips". After so many people died trying to rescue potatoes from in front of burning buildings. This can still be seen today in people's reaction to cold chips, so serve them hot.
