Potatoes are economical, nutrient dense food, virtually fat-free and available year-round. One potato contains about 1/3 of the recommended daily amount of vitamin C, 1/3 of the recommended daily amounts of vitamin B6 and potassium, and significant amounts of iron, magnesium, folic acid, and copper. The essential trace elements manganese, chromium, selenium and molybdenum can also be found in the potato, which is a high-fiber vegetable, containing about 10% of the daily desired amount of fiber. Potatoes even contain some high-quality vegetable protein!
Liberty Market has a regular supply of organically grown potatoes for your enjoyment; pick up some non-GMO red potatoes and try the following recipe, which is quick and easy enough for a weekday supper but can also make an impressive presentation on your holiday table. You can find some very nice local honey at Liberty Market, as well as organic non-GMO onions and unprocessed sea salt.
