Thanks for the feedback!
They should be fine for seed use as long as the "eyes" still appear to be trying to sprout and the rest of the potato is still relatively firm. To make sure, just take a few s…eed pieces, cut them in half, and place the eye end up in a shallow pan of water in a warm, sunny location. They should start growing sprouts in less than a week.
It will only turn green if the seaweed it is sitting on is green. It turns colour to blend into the background so that it can not be seen by it predators or its prey.
Yes, bronze jewelry can turn your skin green because copper is alloyed with tin to make bronze. Copper compounds are green. Your sweat contains salts and moisture that react w…ith the copper.
Store them in a dark place. Light makes them turn green. When I buy them at an open 24 hr grocery, I try to pick the bags under the shelf, exposed to as little light as possib…le
Gold-tone over base metal is not the same as gold. Silver-tone over base metal is not the same thing as silver. Many base metals are used to make jewelry, and they are often c…oated with paint to make it look like gold or silver, but once the paint wears off, the metal can react with the skin and turn it green. This is especially true of jewelry that is made of copper and then coated with paint. Copper reacts to the sweat in a person's skin, and turns green. Gold-filled and gold-plated jewelry may also have certain base metals that react with a person's skin. The same is true of silver-plated and silver-filled. Sterling silver, Bali silver and such are not reactive and should not turn the skin green. Gold should not turn the skin green. Electroplate is another way of fusing gold or silver to base metal, and it is very durable, but if the plating ever cracks, the base metal could be reactive with the skin. The way to avoid purchasing something that will turn your skin green is to check for the tiny stamp imprinted on gold (it will tell how many carats of gold the jewelry is made of) and sterling silver (it will say sterling, and perhaps be accompanied by some numbers).
Answer lack of oxygen and blood flow
I'm not sure if this is true or not but I think that it turns green from it being in the light or in the sun. for example if your making mashed potatoes and you put your potat…oes on the window sill and there is TONS of light and you leave it there for five hours cuz you forgot and you saw it and it's green than that's probally cuz of too much LIGHT NOT DARK. I hope it's right.
Ok relax, and don't listen to everybody else on here...Green skin DOES NOT mean your ring isn't real.... Sterling silver is an alloy of silver 92.5% and copper 7.5%. When it… is worked by a jeweler it will be heated if it is soldered. As a result it may become coated in red copper oxide. Usually this is removed by pickling in a solution of sodium bisulphite which produces a weak sulphuric acid solution. If you have a ring that has not been properly pickled prior to polishing it may still have copper on its surface that will react with your perspiration to make a green copper compound that stains the skin. I would suggest soaking your rings in a mixture of household ammonia and water (50/50)for a day or two. The ammonia solution will turn blue as it forms a copper ammonia ion and this will not hurt the silver. After that, your rings will not turn your skin green because the copper has been removed from the surface of the sterling. Another problem with sterling silver is that it can turn black if you eat a lot of garlic. Again perspiration attacks the silver and in this case I am not sure of the chemical reaction. Proper pickling and polishing will remove the black and restore the silver to its glory. If possible get your silver plated with rhodium and it will never tarnish and cause problems. A final note: Some people just have very strong perspiration that chemically attacks even low (10) karat gold alloys and slowly dissolves a ring from the inside out
It means there was an reaction to an ink that was used, it could have been a different type of ink that was in your blood cells, but it doesn't mean your arm is infected or an…ything, but should still get it check out.
No it does not
No but copper or brass willNo
Pewter turns it black, Copper does turn your skin green though.
because it deposits small amounts of copper onto your skin which then react with the air to go green
Answer Several GREEN copper salts that can be created from combinations of copper and other chemicals such as copper sulfate, copper acetate etc. The Stat…ue of Liberty is green as aiys copper covering is exposed to the salt water and heat. Your skin has many chemicals in sweat that attack the copper bands and allow them to corrode and oxudize turning the resulting chemicals green on your hand. You can also notice this action on copper wires that are exposed to the outside elements.
Most likely it is a contusion, or bruise. From Wikipedia: A bruise, also called a contusion or is sometimes referred by doctors as ecchymosis, is an injury to biologic…al tissue in which the capillaries are damaged, allowing blood to seep into the surrounding tissue. Or you have leprosy.
Potatoes for potato salad should be boiled whole with the skin on for a number of reasons. Just under the skin of the potato is a layer where most of the vitamins and minerals… are located, by boiling with the skin on, the thin layer of skin can be slipped off saving this layer. When Russet potatoes are boiled whole the starch is retained in the flesh of the potato and the potato tends to remain in a cube shape when used in potato salad whereas potatoes cubed and boiled leach the starch out and tend to be mushier and loose there shape somewhat. Potatoes boiled whole skin on, will not absorb water while cubed and boiled will. Potatoes boiled whole, skinned, cubed and dressed while still warm to hot will better absorb the flavors from the other ingredients. Potatoes cubed and boiled tend to absorb water and become watery thus unable to absorb the flavors from the other ingredients. Some will say that there is not much difference between the two methods, but it can be the difference between potato salad, and really good potato salad. Boiling with the skin on takes more time and diligence to cook the potatoes to the point where they are not under-cooked yet not over cooked and are for cooks that take pride in what they produce. Perfectly cooked potatoes are done when a knife will easily slide through the potato without much resistance. Cubing and boiling potatoes are for cooks that are lazy and don't care to make the very best they can. Cold boiled potatoes should never be used for potato salad as they will not absorb any of the flavors from the other ingredients.
