    Default Why are baking potatoes sweet all of a sudden.

    Hi, I can't finish a whole bag of russet or idaho potatoes so I buy
    "baking potatoes" individually. Recently I notice they are way too
    sweet --tastes like someone bred in about a tablespoon of extra
    sugar. Truly awful. I'm fairly sure this is a new variety, but of
    course they never post which it is. Why to they have to make
    everything sweet? What's next-- sweet fish?

    Does anyone know what variety these are and how I can avoid them?

    Do not refrigerate them. That makes them go sweet.

    Did you ever learn set theory in grade school? Not all women are
    bitches, but all bitches are women.

    I know set theory well. I think in sets, Venn diagrams and
    flowcharts. One mistake is that you've got your sets wrong. In
    reality, not all dogs are bitches, but all bitches are dogs.
    Substituting "women" for "dogs" is what's offensive.

    No apology necessary. Yours was an oversight. Maybe Steve should
    apologize, but I'm not holding my breath.

    In the reality of dog breding/showing circles, dogs and bitches are
    completely disjoint sets. Both are canines, but they don't overlap.

    I gave up on plain old potatoes and now only buy sweet potatoes and
    yams. I make french fries, baked, mashed and whateer else I can do
    with them like I did with those "white" potaotes and I think they're
    better for you.

    All are dogs/canines, the subsets are studs and bitches.
