Oatmeal was one of their staples, along with other grains, at one time, but
I was saying today, to prevent the molybdenum defeciencies , to have oatmeal
along with the potato and milk. No doubt, during hard times the Irish
probably only had potatoes and survived. The potato was called a lumpard
descriptive word I just caught the beginning of the program tracing the
various potatoes from Andies to Europe, the various kinds, the blight, etc.
Very interesting, who would have thought the common potato could be so
interesting. Now, it seems history will repeat itsself as McDonald's only
uses one type of potato that they request to be planted where ever their
business happens to be, therefore, experts are afraid the limited type of
potato will cause the potato to go through what happened in Ireland. the
lumper and the cup made up the staple for 3 million Irish,the limited gene
variation opened the potato up to decimation of the plant. At one time they
grew a dozen varieties, 200 years earlier, plus a variety of grains, but the
diversity had disappeared by the time of the famine.
I see what you meant about the grain being shipped to England, they could
pay a higher price than the poor Irish. Boy, that would get your Irish up!

Nope, essentially because McDs only takes a tiny subset of the potatoes grown.
