Nubby Potato

Last week we discovered the Central Square farmers' market which was a great find. Although it still seems expensive (after you've lived in China everything will always seem expensive), farmers' markets are always a good thing to happen upon. I found these adorable little nubby potatoes:

So naturally I brought some home and put them on the windowsill to take pictures of them. The farmer in the market told me what variety they are but I forgot. I'm sure my agriculturally-inclined sister will enlighten me. They're almost too cute to cook!

Just now when I said the farmer in the market, I was reminded of a great abiyoyo anecdote. One teacher pulled out a picture book that goes along with the song "The Farmer in the Dell" and a kid got really excited and yelled out "The farmer in the deli!" Kids say the darnedest things.
