If you’re not from Upstate New York, you may not have heard of salt potatoes or the most famous salt potato, Pepper. Pepper the Salt Potato was planing a visit to the New York State Fair with friends Jam the Jelly Jar, Snap the Pickle, and of course, Phil the Paper Bag. There’s one problem. Pepper could find any excuse not to take a bath because potatoes like dirt. Despite the friends’ efforts to get Pepper ready for the contest, Pepper wanted to stay dirty. He chanted his mantra, “I am who I am!” What are the chances Pepper will win a trophy for Best Potato of the Year at the State Fair?
