    Default Frozen Potatoes

    Hello All!

    I absent mindedly put a bag of small, uncooked, unpeeled, yellow
    potatoes in the freezer. When I found them today I thought I'd see what
    had happened. I just took one, scratched the skin and nuked at 30%
    power. Then I used 100% power for 2 minutes and the potato seemed as
    good as usual. Has anyone else eaten frozen uncooked potatoes and lived?
    :-)

    Aren't the ones sold frozen in the bag with the seasonings raw? Here is what
    I would do: I would cut them up frozen if I had a knife sharp enough and fry
    them with onions thrown in after they get crispy and/or brown.

    That's reassuring but I seem to remember warnings. Perhaps, those
    concerned letting thawed uncooked potatoes sit around at normal
    temperatures.

    I think those potatoes that are frozen for stew or soup mixes, etc. are
    par-boiled prior to freezing.

    I nibble on raw potatoes all the time. I can't see frozen raw being
    any different, and if you cooked them so they tasted the same, and you
    lived to tell us, what's the problem? ;-)

    There is a big hazard in leaving hot, cooked potatoes out to cool to
    room temp - but I forget what the proper way to cool them is. I
    usually leave them out for about a half hour, and then put them in the
    fridge uncovered until they are totally cooled. My son who worked in a
    hotel kitchen was always yelling at me about how potatoes grew
    dangerous bacteria very quickly.

    I thought I had heard of problems during WWII with starving people
    eating potatoes that had been frozen and thawed. Perhaps, the freezing
    and thawing makes them more susceptible to rotting.
