A friend gave me a bag of potatoes that had already started to soften. She was going to throw them away but I decided to take them and save some money. They sat for another month before I finally used them up. Potatoes may grow arms and legs but they are still edible. I ended up making mashed potatoes and freezing them for later use. So don’t be afraid of that little spud that might just start talking, its still safe to eat…unless there’s mold, in which case you should throw it out. Happy eating!
