How Long Can Mashed Potatoes be Safely Regrigerated?

Q:

How long can mashed potatoes be safely refrigerated?

A:

You can typically mash the potatoes and keep them refrigerated for about two to three days. Be sure to keep them in an airtight container because if you don’t, the pulp will oxidize and turn gray.
