Potatoes are a natural product so they need to be carefully stored in order that you eat them in the best condition.
Follow these tips to store potatoes. Potatoes don’t like the light. Keep them in a dark place or they will turn green. If you do find green areas, just cut them off before cooking as they taste quite bitter. Just like us, potatoes can bruise, so be gentle when transporting and handling them.
Make sure your potatoes can breathe. When you get them home, take them out of their packaging and store them in a cool cupboard to make them last longer so they’re ready for your family dinners when you need them.
Try to store potatoes away from strong-smelling foods – they have a habit of absorbing strong smells like onion or garlic.
Don’t store potatoes in the fridge. It’s too chilly for them.
