Potatoes originated in the Andean mountain region of South America. Researchers estimate that potatoes have been cultivated by the Indians living in those areas for between 4,000 and 7,000 years. Unlike many other foods, potatoes were able to be grown at the high altitudes typical of that area and therefore became a staple food for these hardy people. The Spanish conquerors took samples home to Europe, and the potato was introduced into Western culture. Sorry Dr. Atkins, but today, who doesn't like a good spud?
