A potato is good until it rots - and even then I sometimes still just use it. I don't throw them out - even if they're nice and leggy with some serious green!

If they green on me (which they do less of when in a fridge like I have ot keep them) I just do an extra-layer of removal with the peeler and thoroughly de-eye them.

Just as good! Just get rid of the bad-parts and off you go.

I wondered about those green potatoes that I often find in my potato bin. It turns out that "greening" happens when a substance called "solanine" is formed by exposure to air. (Potatoes are used to being underground, so when they are exposed to air, they produce this green stuff as protection. I found out that you should remove the green parts of the potatoes before using, just to be safe.
