potatoes left in the fridge for months

Yaqo Homo | Dec 20, 2006 03:25 PM

In October, I bought a couple pounds of beautiful local fingerling potatoes and put them in my fridge and sort of forgot about them until now. Yes, I'm very absent-minded.

I have examined them for signs of mold or decay and have found none. The biggest difference is now they're significantly more pliable, less crisp and snappy. Are they runied? I figured the loss of crispness might not be big deal since I'm cooking them anyway.

Should I still attempt to roast them or throw them out and buy some fresher taters?
