Description

The potato is an aged crop, born in the Andes Mountains and brought to Europe by the Spanish colonizers around the year 1535 . Today it is highly appreciated on the old continent, but is consumed on a large scale throughout the planet.

It is recommended to cook the potatoes with steam or with very little water and without peeling, since the vitamins and other nutrients are concentrated just in the area of ​​the tuber that is very close to the peel, and remove it at the time of serving or combine with other ingredients.
