I used this product per the directions for one meal and used a different technique the 2nd time since I didn't like the way the potatoes turned out the first time. I mashed them and they never really got cooked all the way in the microwave. I kept tasting them & steaming them in the microwave and they tasted so strange even with making mashed potatoes out of them. I added butter and milk per the directions as well. Never tasted potato like these before. I also tried them in potato salad. Again, strange texture to the cooked or steamed potato. Sorry, I wanted to love them as I would eat potatoes anyway everyday.
