I was wondering if you can use regular organic potatoes that have started to sprout to plant and grow more potatoes… Is that the type of cut pieces you were referring to?

Home grown vegetables generally taste better than their store-bought counterparts. In my experience, the difference is never so wide than with potatoes. If you have ever been curious about growing potatoes, definitely take the plunge. My germination rate is usually 100% every year using seed potatoes. It is always a mystery what you will find at harvest time, but even the small ugly looking ones taste fantastic.
