Somehow I must have either bought bad potatoes or overcooked them last time. I am glad to report that the mashed potatoes turned out great this time. I cooked up 10 lbs for Thanksgiving lunch at work.

Actually you can get potatoes grown in soil lacking in potassium and end up with poor results. The potatoes will tend to be soggy after cooking and often the cooks think they have over done them where actually that isn't the case at all. You can't tell before hand.

Yukon Golds are OK too. I don't grow them anymore having found the afore mentioned red/yellows to be superior varieties which yield better and have better texture as well as flavor. My customers rave over them so keep your eyes open for them. Look in specialty and farm markets for them. You may get lucky.
