How to store

storing potatoesKeep them in a dark and cool place, but don’t refrigerate. The cold, damp air in the refrigerator causes their starches to turn into sugars, which can affect taste and texture.

Store them in a paper bag or a ventilated container (as it’s more breathable than plastic) in a coolish spot, such as the pantry. Enjoy within two weeks.

Keep them away from onions or fruits like apples as they can make your spuds begin to sprout. If they start to shoot or if they have green spots discard these potatoes.
