When the farmer came to visit us in November to help us with the garage, he gave us a big bag of potatoes. We had the bag in the basement, and yesterday when I went to get some to use for dinner, I saw that many of them had grown sprouts! Yikes.
I Googled to see if it was safe to eat spuds that have sprouts growing on them. Many of the websites said, "if the potato is firm, it has most of the nutrients intact and can be eaten after removing the sprouted part. However, if the potato is shrunken and wrinkled, it should not be eaten." I went through and picked out the ones that couldn't be saved and chucked them into the compost. The others, I made into hash browns. I have another half of a 10 pound bag to go through, I guess we'll be eating a lot of potatoes this week!
