Potatoes refer to the starchy tuber of a perennial plant (Solanum tuberosum) native to South America and cultivated worldwide.
Potatoes can be prepared a variety of ways: fried, baked, mashed, boiled, roasted, microwaved, or steamed.
Potato varieties common to North America include the Russet, Yukon gold, yellow fin or red gold.
Potatoes should be stored in a cool, dark place, but not in a refrigerator, as they will develop a strange flavor and turn brown. Potatoes should be stored separately from onions, due to a chemical reaction between the two that will spoil both faster.
