It isn't right for me to have an Albanian food blog without mentioning potatoes because Albanians eat a lot of potatoes. Potatoes can be found year-round at the markets and they are pretty cheap to buy. Usually potatoes are cooked as fries here and they are often doused with a bunch of olive oil. I had to have a conversation with my host family once about how much olive oil they use when cooking potatoes and cooking pretty much everything actually. We talked about how yes, olive oil is good for you, but only in moderation. If you use a cup of olive oil to cook your potatoes it kind of defeats the purpose.
