    I don't know if she's right, but that's what I would do. I would eat them anyway.

    The little bud aren't harmful if there aren't too many of them. If they get long and green, don't eat the potatoes anymore.

    First the potatoes go real soft and when they rot they smell like eel. There's nothin worse then the smell of a rotten potatoe.

    i love eating potatoes, but am grossed out by the washing/peeling part. They seem so dirty. My Mom also told me to take off the sprouty things and they'd be fine, but sometimes I just throw them out and get new, 'cause it icks me out.

    I like potatoes but they have high carbs so I can't have too much of them.

    Those little 'sprouts' are OK - just knock them off. But if you see any GREEN spots, or the skin takes on a greenish tinge then don't eat it.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.
