Idaho the Potato State


The Idaho potato is any potato grown in the American state of Idaho, but one variety, the Russet Burbank, has come to be closely associated with Idaho. When most consumers think of Idaho potatoes, they visualize the Russet Burbank, a classic starchy potato which has a wide range of uses. Idaho has come to be linked with potato production in the United States, and it produces one of the largest yearly crops of potatoes in the United States, after Washington State......To read more about the Idaho potato go to http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-an-idaho-potato.htm I love potatoes.....baked, mashed, hash browns, Fries....even Potato Soup.

Can you really still find this stuff where you live? Where I live there are now hardly any places still selling postcards. I asked a dealer from a resort town about this, and she said that is true even where she lives.

I have some recipe cards I bought through the mail more than 15 years ago, but I never saw any in a shop.
