Potatoes have many "eyes" (spots where sprouts occur). If too many eyes
sprout those resulting sprouts become crowded, reducing yield. Man has
discovered that 2-3 sprouts work well for maximum production, thus the
cutting before planting helps out as well as producing additional "seed".
We used to cut them and let dry AKA cure for 3 or 4 days.

from what i've seen in the buckets
of scraps, don't worry. those buggers
don't rot easily.
i've got plenty of peels that were
cut and immediately buried that are
still viable and sprouting months
the only thing i would be worried
about if there was any apparent rot
to start with. trim that off and
you'll be good to go.
