One of Life’s Little Challenges

I apologize for yet another potato post, but I couldn’t resist sharing this one withllunchuywaquachi you, which I stumbled across while doing more research into the Prince Albert. The Andean potato in the photo is called Papa Llunchuy Waqachi. The translation is: “potato that makes the daughter-in-law weep”. The story goes that if the bride-to-be does a good job of peeling this potato, she is allowed to marry her man.

  1. Janet, one shouldn’t be apologetic about any discussion of the potato. The potato is no child’s play. Whoever invented it was serious. Just consider this: potaTO; LeonardDO; coincidence? I think not.
