Anyone know anything I can do with Semi-Rotten Potatoes? My mom bought them 'cause they were on sale and I don't want to let them go to waste.

So... anyone know what to do with them? I backed some slices of them and melted some cheese on them and they wern't too bad.

in what way are they semi-rotten?

ie, you cut them open and there's black spots? just cut those out and use the good bits.

If they're green and sprouting - cut off all the green bits - that is bad news.

And if they're sorta squishy, mashed potatoes is about the only way to go. Cut out the bad bits when you're cubing them (because there will be), then cook 'em up like normal.

For prevention later, store them in a dark place. Your basement or cellar are best (we keep ours in a cupboard) and use them within two months. If it's getting close to deadline and you've got lots of taters still, just turn them all into mashed potatoes and freeze them. Much better choice than letting them go bad.

They are a little squishy but only have some black spots inside.

It was too late for "preservation" when she bought them. dry

She didn't realise why they were on sale. laugh

I managed to bake them up chrispy so I might be able to do that and see how they come, but it's looking like I'll have to mash them, or make Cream of Potato Soup...

I missed that they came from the store that way; I thought you'd had 'em sitting around for a while (our problem- we buy ten pounds 'cause they're cheaper that way, and that's a lot of potato for two people).

Well, if you can't eat them, you could always try to start them. Let them sprout, then rub off all but a few at the "top" of the potato (the end where they're sprouting best). Then plant them about four inches deep. Once the plants are over a foot tall -this takes about six months outdoors- you can dig them up and check for potatoes. We had one in water on our kitchen windowsill when I was a kid- it never made potatoes, but potato flowers are kinda pretty.

(You can do this with garlic and ginger root too.)

Though, I don't think theese potatoes could sprout anything... I guess I'll have to see...

If you decide to mash them up, you can freeze them for future use. My mom does this with leftover mashed potatoes and uses them to thicken soups and stews.


Yummy... Love that idea.. Have done it too and it works wonderful clap

Stay outta the red if you would please wink
