Frozen potatoes

We had the first frost of winter a couple of days ago, and yesterday on doing some weeding we discovered some potatoes that had been inadvertently left in the ground. They looked fine so I simmered them in the usual way before mashing them. They wouldn't soften - after about 40 minutes of simmering they were just slightly yielding so I gave up and mashed them anyway. They tasted okay but were full of lumpy hard bits.

I've still got a pile of them. Do you think they are worth persevering with and cooking even longer? Or will the frost have changed their structure? I think they are Jersey Bennes, but could be Agrias. The flesh was very pale, much paler than Agrias.

Why not try grating them before cooking if you going to mash them anyway!

I reckon the frost has changed them. I would ditch them personally, but if you are OK with how they turn out, then persevere.
