: What is the meaning of "soapy potato"?

: Thank you!

I had never heard of a "soapy" potato. So I Googled it. From what I gather, there are two opposing attributes to potatoes: soapy and floury. Soapy potatoes have more moisture content and floury potatoes are drier. I would like to know more about this "soapy potato" thing. If anyone knows please continue the thread.
