Delicious curry must not be less blindly in the Western world and Asian rice as important as the "potato", but in the Oriental family kitchen is often easy to buy too much at a time but can not eat in time, finally found that the potato epidermis issued a small green buds.
As long as the potato sprouts, on behalf of the potato is reimbursed, can not be cooked to eat!In addition, if the potato exposure to sunlight, will also let the epidermis appear green reaction, which is also the phenomenon of a large increase in the content of eggplant, the same can not be eaten.
This is true even if it is simply cut off germination (even if it is only a small bud) or a green part, because the whole potato is now filled with the toxic substance of eggplant.Perhaps the first small buds of the initial level of toxic substances is not much, but for people with poor physical fitness or immune problems, even if the trace is still likely to trigger a toxic reaction, it is recommended not to take cheap potatoes to bet.

Since potatoes are vegetables of the cool season and can be harvested within about 3 months of cultivation, it is best to calculate your own time and avoid the fact that the area on the ground is too hot to wither due to the overheating of the weather.
