Did You Know…? French Fries

Sweet potato friesSummer is the season for delicious chips (fried or baked, yellow or sweet)!

Did you know that French Fries are not actually French, but Belgian? In the Meuse Valley during the late 17th and early 18th centuries, people began frying strips of potatoes when the small fish they usually fried were unavailable due to frozen rivers. The French adopted this practice and carried it over to America when they emigrated. These fried potatoes came to be known as “potatoes in the French manner,” and eventually “French Fries.”
