POTATOES by Janet Spencer

The potato is a member of the deadly nightshade family and its leaves are indeed poisonous. The tuber is not poisonous in the least, but it took a lot to overcome cultural fears surrounding the plant. Come along with Tidbits as we consider the humble but miraculous potato. • Potatoes originated in the Peruvian Andes. The Incas called them batatas. They were eating potatoes 2,000 years before Columbus set sail. There are over 5,000 kinds of potatoes growing in the Andes— so many types that the local language has 1,000 different words for potato. The Incas even measured time by how long it took a potato to cook. When the Spanish Conquistadors overran the land, they had never seen anything like the potato. They were forced to eat the strange new food when their own food supplies ran low. The potatoes they introduced to Europe turned out to be far more valuable than the gold that they killed for, but it took some doing to convince the European populace to try them out. • In 1744 Prussia was at war and Frederick the Great was distressed to see his people starving to death. He had earlier been introduced to the potato as a food crop, and he encouraged the peasants to grow the new food as well. The peasants did grow them— but they only fed them to their livestock.

POTATOES (continued): • So the ruler had his cooks invent recipes using the potato, and passed copies of the recipes out to everybody. Still the people would not eat the potato. Finally Frederic resorted to the threat of violence: he issued an edict that anyone who did not eat potatoes would have their ears cut off. Potatoes quickly became the most important part of the Prussian diet. • When French pharmacist Augustine

Parmentier was captured during the Seven Year War in the mid-1700s, he was thrown into prison where his Prussian captors fed him little besides potatoes. He remained in good health in spite of the limited diet. When he was released, he returned home and encouraged all French families to start eating potatoes. He went to the King of France with a plan to grow potatoes and feed them to the hungry. The King was not impressed, but he consented to give Parmentier a few acres of the worst

possible land near Paris. Nothing would grow there— nothing, that is, except potatoes, which thrived. Like the Prussians, the French people thought of potatoes as simply a food for livestock, so Parmentier devised scheme to change the tide of public opinion. • Operating under the principle that people only want what they can’t have, he stationed soldiers around the potato field in order to “protect” this valuable crop from theft. However, he instructed the soldiers

to take bribes and allow peasants to steal potatoes. The plan worked, and soon potatoes were growing all over the countryside. Next, Parmentier threw a huge feast, inviting all the most prominent names of the day. Everything served at the feast was made from potatoes - from soup to dessert. The Queen even wore potato flowers in her hair. This was all that was needed to make the potato a socially acceptable food. • Potatoes didn’t gain popularity in

POTATOES (continued): America until Thomas Jefferson began serving them regularly at the White House. Then the potato caught on fast, with good reason. The potato is one of the most perfect natural sources of nutrition found so far. The average potato has 100 calories and provides 50% of the U.S. Recommended Daily Allowance of vitamin C; 20% of vitamin B6; 15% of iodine; 10% of niacin, iron and copper; and smaller amounts of other vitamins and minerals. Potatoes are high in potassium and fiber but have no fat and are almost salt free. • No other food matches the potato in food energy per acre. Potatoes produce 75% more food energy per acre than wheat and 58% more than rice. The Soviet Union grows the most potatoes, followed by Poland, the US, and Canada. Only corn grows in more countries than potatoes. It’s the fourth most important food worldwide, after wheat, rice, and corn. It’s also is the only vegetable that grows in the desert and in mountains above 14,000 feet. The value of the potato worldwide exceeds $100 billion a year. • Potatoes have many uses. They are used in the production of many kinds of foods. They are added to soups, sauces, pasta, baked goods and dairy products in order to help foods stick together, stop ice crystals from forming, and make food creamier. When used to make ethyl alcohol (ethanol), one acre of potatoes can produce enough gas to fill up 25 station wagons. A product made from potatoes is used by oil well drillers in order to keep their drills dry enough to keep the friction high. Potato starch was used in the early days of color photography, and vodka is made from distilled potatoes. Potato starch is now being made into “plastic” bags which decompose when buried. Potatoes are also used in manufacturing of plastics, medicines, paper, cloth, glue, and candy. THE POTATO FAMINE • Growing potatoes in Ireland became very popular because they were handy to have around during times of war. The edible underground tubers were likely to escape the notice of invading troops. The growing green tops could not be set afire as could fields of wheat or barley. Even if a potato field were trampled by soldiers, the tubers would be undamaged. Armies and outlaws were not likely to take the time to dig them up. After being dug up, the potatoes could be taken directly to the kitchen to be cooked and eaten without having to be ground at a mill first. They could be stored in a root cellar for months, to be eaten in leaner times. People with very little land could still grow lots of potatoes, which was not the case with grains. Potatoes thrived on Ireland’s very poor soil, and all that was needed to plant them was a spade rather than a horse and plow. It is thought that the nickname “spud” came from “spade.”

Pet Bits Q: My daughter adopted a young puppy. He’s a great little dog except that he mounts every animal he gets near. This isn’t a constant thing, but it happens often enough. Is there something we can do to curtail this behavior? A: “Of course, this could be the start of sexual behavior if the puppy is not neutered,” says Landsberg. “If the dog is neutered, it is still what normal dogs sometimes do, and young dogs particularly because it feels good, and they haven’t perhaps yet learned appropriate play protocol. Try allowing your dog to play, but with a leash on. When your puppy seems to be having ‘too much fun’ (with other dogs), if you get my drift, calmly walk away with him. Over time, the dog will learn that mounting means play must stop.” Of course, if the behavior really gets obnoxious, an adult dog may put your pup in his place - and that will be that.
