Green in potatoes

HELP!!! I just peeled 5 pounds of Russet potatoes. Most of them had a greenish tint just under the skins. The skins did not look greenish until I started to peel them. I removed all traces of the green as I peeled them. Are they safe? I know green in a potato is not a good thing.

I don't have time to get another bag before dinner time and I have 12 people coming over for Rosh Hashana!! I don't want to poison anyone!!! WHAT SHOULD I DO!?!?!

Frantically, Jan

If you've removed the green, use the potatoes. They are fine.

Thanks guys!! I'd hate to think what would happen to me if I poisoned my in-laws during a Jewish holiday! Something else to repent on Yom Kippur!!

The green part is mildly poisonous, though, so make sure you peel it all off.

Unless you don't get along with your inlaws!
