Antimicrobial foods?

Getting hold of Scandinavian almond potatoes — or a similar variety?

Scandinavia has a variety of potato called almond. It's small, extremely mealy and delicate, and has a slightly sweet, buttery flavour; it's utterly delicious. I have been looking for this variety in the US (specifically, New York), but I'm coming up short. Is there a place to find it, or is there an American variety that is comparable?

Name the film: potato edition

A few years ago, I saw a kitchen-sink style film on TV where the daughter didn't eat her evening meal, so her father insisted she was served it at every subsequent meal until she ate it. Googling brings up nothing - any ideas? [more inside]

Can we eat it: talking a green streak version

We have just the right number of potatoes per person. Organic Yukon. One of them had a green streak visible through the skin -- I can't see everything that's inside, of course. Can we eat this potato? I cut off the visible green part. There is a lot of Toxic Green Potato lore out there. I just can't believe it's a big deal -- I mean, a busy sous chef would never throw out a potato for a bit of a green streak, right? or even notice it?-- but another cook in our kitchen thinks it's dangerous toxic mold. Yes, the potato was only 25 cents or something, but it would be nice for everyone to have their baked potato if there's no reason to toss it. The potatoes will be done in an hour, so thanks!

Help save whats left of my potatoes?

Our potato plants are dying miserably with the drought in our area we tried for two weeks to water them when it was possible. To compound this problem pests were way up and the plants that aren't dying were eaten despite sometimes HOURS a day removing the problem bugs by hand. But we have potatoes... question inside.

I want paprika potato chips!

Paprika chips: are these available in the U.S.? I was in Europe last year and it seemed like every country had paprika potato chips from different brands (even Pringles). I can't seem to find any store/brand in the U.S. that has these. They're so good! Yeah there...I just used my ask mefi question on potato chips.

Potatoes blowing up

Potatoes don't last more than a week in my apartment. There is no cool, dry place to store them - my pantry is just as hot and muggy as the rest of the place.
