Boiling Potatoes Turned My Pot Black?

Jennalynn | | Aug 23, 2008 02:50 PM

I recently bought a very large 16qt heavy aluminum stock pot to use for various purposes.

Since I had to boil 6lbs of potatoes for a party tomorrow, I decided to use my nice new pot.

They potatoes came out fine... but now the inside of the pot is completely black, not charred... but the aluminum has turned dark black.

What happened? Has it hurt the pot or the potatoes beyond repair?

And is there a way to clean it.
