Stranded on a desert island, you can only have 1 food but all different variations, i.e. potatoes = chips.?

What would you choose? Again, I would pick potatoes with hash browns, red potatoes, french fries, twice baked, garlic mashed, etc.

    On a desert island you could catch fish, might find coconuts, may also find taro or some other such starchy root. You cold make your own salt by evaporating sea water in a shell.

    So my answer would be lemons or limes. You could use them to season the fish accent the coconut milk, as antiseptic (along with salt water) and they would save you from scurvey with the vitimin C.

    Identitynumber7 stole my answer! As a kid I was fascinated reading about pirates dying of scurvy from vitamin C deficiency. Gimme some oranges!

    Cheese. Cannot get enough of the stuff. I feel like a big mouse, to use John Candy's words from "Uncle Buck."
