Avoiding Pasty Mashed Potatoes?

I refrigerated uncooked, but peeled potatoes for a couple of days because I couldn't fit them all in the pan that was cooking up a huge batch of mashed potatoes. When I did cook them up and made mashed potatoes, they tasted pasty instead of like the original. Is there any way to avoid this?

I never peel potatoes until ready to boil them. They will also get gluey if you let them sit in the water after they're cooked before you mash them.

You should have put them in ice water and left them on the counter. That is the secret to crispy French fries. It will prevent mushy mashed potatoes, too.
