I've found that one - I'm not sold on the idea it's potatoes, but at least it culinarily could be. But the Weckerin one is the one that's proving elusive. We've had a discussion on that a while ago (it's in the florilegium) that sufggested a later edition might have cribbed it, but I'm hoping someone might have gained more insight than we had back when.
