Potatoes are used to make French fries. They grow beneath the soil. The vegetable was first found in Peru many years ago. Potatoes are now popular in United States, and they are grown in every state.

French fries are not just served in restaurants. Fairs and parks sell fries, too. People wait in line at food stands for hot, crispy fries. Some cover their fries with cheese. Others sprinkle vinegar on theirs! Eating fries outside is a treat.
