Surviving With Potatoes

            Do you like potatoes as much as I do?  I can eat them just about any way they’re prepared, and I fix them several different ways myself.  I’ll take them mashed, baked, fried, in potato salad, or any other way you can think of.  Potatoes can be combined with or cooked into so many other dishes, too.  In fact versatility is one of the great things about potatoes.  After all, how many ways can you cook up broccoli or beets?  And potatoes are very nutritious with vitamins A and C and a few minerals as well.  Don’t let talk of carbohydrates scare you away from potatoes.  They have much going in their favor.  There’s an article entitled All Things Potatoes if you’d like a little more perspective and history, and even a few recipes.

 

            I’ll bet you know what I’m going to say next.  Potatoes are a marvelous food for survival.  They store well in a cool dry place, and they’re very easy to grow in the garden.  Of course, you can buy potatoes cheaply at the grocery store, but the really nice thing about growing them in your garden is that you can buy them from seed companies and grow varieties the grocery stores don’t have.

 

            Take potatoes with you the next time you go camping.  Whether on an outing or at home, why not experiment with prepared potatoes for storage food? Go to the banner below for Nitro-Pak and type the word Potatoes in the search box.  You’ll be surprised at what comes up.  Somebody has really put a lot of thought into this.  There are ready made mashed potatoes, diced potatoes, and potatoes included in a number of scrumptious meals.
