I cut potatoes into French fry slices and left them in the refrigerator for a few days. They are partly black in color, are they safe to eat?
The raw potatoes turn gray from exposure to air. When turning black, that means they have been exposed way too long. I would toss and start over again. Next time, cut the potatoes and put in water with a little acidity (1 tablespoon of white wine vinegar or concentrated lemon juice per gallon) and this will help keep the submerged potato strips from discoloring when you refrigerate them until ready to drain and fry.

Established in 1937, the Idaho Potato Commission (IPC) is a state agency that is responsible for promoting and protecting the famous "Grown in Idaho®" seal, a federally registered trademark that assures consumers they are purchasing genuine, top-quality Idaho® potatoes. Idaho's ideal growing conditions, including rich, volcanic soil, climate and irrigation differentiate Idaho® potatoes from potatoes grown in other states.
