Storing Potatoes

Potatoes should be stored in cool, dark place with at about 40F. If potatoes get too warm, they will sprout and if they get too cold, they will get sweet. If potatoes are stored at below 40F, simply let them warm up at room temperature for a few days and their normal flavor will return. Do not allow potatoes to freeze. Potatoes should be stored in a bin or a bag that is at least a few inches off the ground but not piled more than 18 inches deep. If stored in a the right conditions, potatoes can be stored for months.

Storing Potatoes

If you place an apple in your potato bin they won't sprout as fast. Use the apple until it's completely shriveled up and then replace it with a fresh one. Works for me ! (06/01/2006)
