Thanks! I found it in a really interesting article in Smithsonian
about potatoes (they call ch'uñu
by its (Andean?) Spanish name chuño
). I think that article actually really helped me understand how Europe became so powerful, and I had no idea until I read that article how incredibly important potatoes were for feeding Europe and preventing famines, which in turn led to a dramatic improvement to the standard of living.
