Getting hold of Scandinavian almond potatoes — or a similar variety?

Scandinavia has a variety of potato called almond. It's small, extremely mealy and delicate, and has a slightly sweet, buttery flavour; it's utterly delicious. I have been looking for this variety in the US (specifically, New York), but I'm coming up short. Is there a place to find it, or is there an American variety that is comparable?

Can I eat this: leftover baked potato insides

About 7-10 days ago I made potato skins. I scooped out the insides, stuck them in the fridge, and forgot about them. Now I am making baked potato soup and just remembered them. It's just potatoes, no dairy or anything else. They look fine and smell fine. Has it been too long or can I add them to my soup?

Help me make awesome hash browned potatoes again!

Many years ago as a bachelor I used to make great hash browned potatoes (hash browns). All I can remember is that I used to par-boil them first, then put them in the fridge. The next day, or several days later I would then shred them with a cheese grater, right into the cast iron skillet, which already had hot oil in it, and fry up some great eating. [more inside]

Emergency Thanksgiving Chicago pick-up

I was wondering if anyone knew of some place in Chicago that was still offering Thanksgiving pick-up that's somewhere in the vicinity of the lake or the loop. Everything I'm finding is way out west which isn't going to work for me, or sold out. Alternatively, given that it's just the two of us, is it better to just go to a restaurant? If so, any recommendations?

How to modify potato recipe cooking time/temperature?

Can I cook the potatoes at a lower temperature for a longer period of time and have a good result? Will the potatoes dry out or not cook (or otherwise go wrong) if cooked longer at a lower temperature? Can I cook them and then reheat them without them getting soggy or otherwise weird? [more inside]

Why do I only sometimes have a bad reaction to potatoes?

For at least the past year, I've been having a bad reaction to potatoes--but only sometimes. It's very inconsistent, and despite carefully tracking it for months, I still can't find a pattern. I can eat the same type of potato with the exact same accompaniments, and one time is fine and the other time I have near-immediate gastric distress. What could be causing the issues, and why is it so inconsistent? I don't have issues with any other nightshades, or any other food intolerances. I've already considered that it might be something else I eat with the potatoes, but tracking my diet has not borne that out. [more inside]

Difference between frozen bagged hash browns and a potato/grater?

My wife loves hash brown casserole and I was going to whip up a batch this weekend for her but all the recipes I can find call for a bag of frozen shredded hash browns while I have a 7lb bag of whole potatoes. Is there any major difference between using frozen bagged hash browns and shredding up a few potatoes of my own?

I Want My Hot Potatoes to Taste Like I Make 'Em

Hot Potatoes is great, enabling you to create various kinds of exercise for teaching websites. But it seems to be limited in terms of customization, and retains that ol' HP look. Can anyone out there recommend anything similar (free or not) with greater capabilities for adaptation to your own site's appearance?

How can I make my potatoes last longer?

Potatoes don't last more than a week in my apartment. There is no cool, dry place to store them - my pantry is just as hot and muggy as the rest of the place.
