Are potatoes that have been in the fridge over night and turned black still ok to cook and eat?
I started to fry sliced potatoes last night and had to halt the meal. I put the sliced potatoes and the oil in a bowl and placed them in the fridge over night. I want to cook them tonight but some of them have turned black, are they still good to eat?
If the bowl got humidity and then you start frying those potatoes you will likely get a lot of hot oil splashes because of the water drops; which will probably get you burned.
In that case you should have saved the potato slices in a container with water on the refrigerator to prevent them from turning black (before putting them in oil). And also saving the oil in a separate container inside a cabinet or a dark place would have been a better idea.
So at this moment what you can do is discard those black sliced potatoes along with the oil and start cutting potatoes to make the fries.
