What causes the holes seen in this potato?


I was chopping potatoes the other night to prepare oven-baked fries, and came across this anomaly -- I decided to snap a picture and see if any of the expert gardeners on HP could tell me what the cause is for this odd growth pattern? The eliptical spots are about 1/4 inch deep on either side, and about 1/2 inch across. Thank you!

    I'll keep that in mind if I come across this again! We tossed it into the compost because I was unsure. Thank you! :)
