Potatoes starting to get a bit soft. Still OK?

11 years ago

I've got a 5# bag of russets that have been sitting here for a couple weeks, maybe three? It's been cooler temps here so they're not hot, they were in the kitchen, not the frig. I'm making some ribs and was going to use them but they feel slightly soft. Not squishy. They're not slimy. They're just a bit soft. Hard to describe, but they give a little, and spring back. Wondering if they're safe to use or should I go when in doubt, throw them out and let the wildlife decide whether they're compost.

I'm Nesco-ing some ribs (in a foil pouch) and tossed a few in anyway but thought I'd petition the experts and see what you think. Toss? Try?
