Is it safe to eat potatoes that have little roots growing, as long as I cut those (and any green parts) out?
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
I do it all the time and lived to tell about it - so yes. If they're soft, or have black spots, I toss them, but gouge out their eyes, clean 'em up and use em.
I agree with burnt offerings & do the same.
Thank you so much Burnt Offerings and BlissfulBaker! Youve saved me money (and a trip to the grocery store)! :)
With Burntofferings on this one. just scoop around the root area, generously put off the green portion & use up the tuber. As long as they potatoes are not mushy & smelly in parts! those are gross!
I do that all the time, & am alive & kicking!,
