Question: Potatoes Stored in Garage Froze

By Stacey 1

I have yellow potatoes laying out in my garage and we have 3-4 inches of snow on the ground and they are all frozen. I need to know if I can just keep them frozen and put them in bags and into the freezer. I really don't want to waste them. The cold weather kind of just came on faster then I was expecting.

Potatoes frozen one time can be used. After frozen more than once and rethawed they turn mushy grey and taste terrible. Best to cut them up while still semi frozen, blanch if not going to use them right away, dry them quick and freeze loosely on cookie trays as french fries, homefries, etc. Place pieces in bags and freeze right away. Mash and freeze immediately. Don't add anything else to potatoes.

You most certainly can still use them! Cook and mash them and re-freeze in individual containers for future use for potato pancakes, dumplings, seasoned mashers, etc, etc! Here are a couple links that should be of help to you and both links have quite a few good recipes:

Question: Using Potatoes That Accidentally Froze

I left a 15# bag of potatoes in the car and they froze. I brought them into the house and they thawed and now are leaking fluids and are spongy. Are they still edible for mashed or frying?

This happened to me once too. I cut them in large pieces, microwave cooked them with the skins on, drained the excess water then peeled them. I puree'd them and froze several bags, each one enough to use as the base for a creamed soup. Worked fine.
