Can I use some red potatoes that are a little soft and a little old? They had some roots growing but I picked them off. They are from our farm box and I hate to throw them out.

so long as they aren't green they should be fine.

Chuck them in a stew and you'll never know.

I would, but not for baked potatoes. In something, you'll never notice.

You can chop them and soak them in cold water for a little while to rehydrate them.

No big deal. We store potatoes in a root cellar all winter, and they get a bit soft. This works great. You don't want to eat any part of a potato that's gone green, and you don't want to eat the sprouts. But if it's just a bit soft, it'll be fine.

Thanks everyone. I used the potatoes in garlicy potatoes and sausage, which I posted under the ground pork thread - or something like that. They were fine, and I'm so glad I used the oldest ones.

We're getting sweet potatoes in the farm box, now. Yum.
