Easily available and mostly loved by all, potatoes are probably one of the most dynamic and versatile food ingredients across the world. Baked, fried or mashed, you name it and they'll take on that form readily.

Although potatoes are quite easily available in most places, there exists a variety that can be found only ten days in a year. A rare species of potato, the Bonnotte de Noirmoutie, are found off the French Atlantic coast in the Bay of Biscay.
This variety goes back to the 1920s when they were brought here from Barfleur in Manche in northwestern France. Acclimatising well to the climate and soil here, they came to be known as the Bonnotte.

Also one of the most expensive variants, these potatoes are grown only on a tiny strip of land at the Île de Noirmoutier, where the soil is lightweight and very sandy.
This rare species of potatoes has a unique taste—saltier than its counterparts—owing to the soil and fertilisation. The island where these potatoes thrive is blessed with a mild climate and salty air. The soil in which the species are cultivated is light, sandy and rich in seaweed. Additionally, being on the coast it also absorbs the scent of the ocean.

During the autumn season, the farmers collect seaweed from the beaches and use it to fertilise the fields. The unique flavour of the potatoes is said to come from the iodine in the kelp. As per local traditions, the potatoes are planted by hand and then harvested about 90 days later, usually in May, over a period of ten days when over 2,000 pickers get the fresh produce ready. Each potato is sent out the day it is picked. The harvesting method is a laborious task, as they are handpicked and that too one by one. While other crops can be seen well cultivated and spread out on this farmland, the Bonnotte potatoes are found only on 5 percent of the total land.

Each year, on the first Saturday of May, farmers here celebrate this special variety of potatoes with great pomp and show. Activities during the festival range from picking the Bonnottes in the field to a treasure hunt and a dinner including the potatoes, alongwith a concert. That's some pomp and show dedicated to a vegetable!

Used for all courses in a meal, from soups to salads to purées, these potatoes lend a rich depth of flavour to everything. While cooking them one needs to be careful to not peel off the skin as it is the skin that retains the saline flavour due to its to exposure to the soil and the ocean. With this variety of potatoes the skin is as important as the flesh, although connoisseurs might argue in favour of the skin.
(CNN) — With coronavirus severely affecting the potato supply chain, a farm in Idaho is giving awayabout 2 million potatoes so they don’t go to waste. First come, first served.
Ryan Cranney, CEO of Cranney Farms in Oakley, Idaho, about 150 miles from Boise, told CNN the majority of his potatoes from the farm are typically sold to grocery stores and to restaurants to make french fries.
Because of stay-at-home orders throughout the nation, Cranney said the food service demand is down significantly, leaving him with six months worth of crop.
“With people staying at home, these restaurants have shut down and so our markets have just kind of fallen apart,” Cranney said. “The factories that we sell to for french fries, they’ve lost their sales and had to shut their factories down with freezers full of french fries and so the outlets for our potatoes, we’re having a difficult time getting them to market.”
A little over 50% of Cranney’s sales come from its potato crop, according to Cranney.
Cranney Farms also grows sugar beats, wheat, barley, mustard seeds, corn and alfalfa and they raise cattle, but Cranney said their potato crop and cattle have been hit the hardest.
“We’ve made our best assumptions so we’re cutting back what we’re going to grow this year,” Cranney said. “If things turn around quickly and take off, we’re going to be short. But if it drags on longer for several more months, it could be a total disaster. People are going to lose their farms over this.”
Initially, Cranney said he posted about the crop on Facebook, urging members of his community of about 700 people to show up at the farm and grab as many potatoes as they want. But now, people are driving hours to pick some up.
“The response has completely blown me away,” Cranney said. “People are coming from all over the place.”

Cranney said he’s expecting a woman from Kansas on Thursday who will have driven 19 hours. Food banks and soup kitchens are also starting to show up.

Most of the people who have come for the potatoes are doing it for others, grabbing them for friends and neighbors.
“We gave a little bit and now they’re giving in return, and that’s what made it worth it to me,” Cranney said. “It’s been fun for me to see people thinking of others and give their time and resources to take care of other people.”
