Sir Loin--I'm not much of a returner of goods.
I was watching some food show the other day --the Diner's and Drives show--the chef/cook said they only bought potatoes aged/dried/cured for 4 months to make perfect fries. That makes me think that potatoes need to be dried a while before using. (like garlic, like popcorn--and maybe other vegetables)
