Featured Question

I'm a certified, occupational chef, been making mashed potatoes for 30 yrs. I've noticed in the last couple of years, that red or golden Yukon, also boiler potatoes, are turning to glue, while whipping! Potatoes are being made the same way, no changes. What's up? Btw, I am Not using russet or baker potatoes, only boiler potatoes. Not allowing to stand in water, Not overcooking either and they start to look like glue almost immediately, upon whipping. Draining properly as well. No reason, on earth, I can see for this happening! Wrecked Thanksgiving dinner, 2 yrs in a row from this same problem. When I normally get Rave reviews on my mashed potatoes. Are these genetically modified potatoes? These potatoes are also being stored in 40 degree temps, cool n dry.
