    Default storing potatoes


    How can I store potatoes so they last longer? Please tell me how you store
    them and how long they last. I heard that you should store them in the dark
    without them touching one another, that sounds like it takes up a lot of
    space. Thanks,Kathy

    Well I do know not to store them near onions. Onions make the potatoes grow
    eyes, and potatoes make the onions go bad fast.

    Hi,
    Put a nice large apple in the bag [ I use a paper bag ] with the potatoes, I
    just lay the apple on top of the potatoes, and it keeps them from
    sprouting...being sure to store them in a cool dark place. I have done this
    for a long time and it works very well..

    Hi,
    Not sure about potatoes, but I store onions like this: I gather up clean,
    old hose, and drop one onion into the toe of it. Tie a knot into it. Drop
    another onion, tie another knot. Continue til the hose is about full. Make
    a loop that you can hang onto a nail in the utility room, pantry, or
    wherever. When you need an onion, just cut the bottom onion off, below the
    knot. You can keep onions this way for a loooong time!

    When I know my potatoes are going to go bad soon, I
    cook 'em up. I bake a whole cookie sheet full of
    cubed/seasoned potatoes, slice them and bake them in
    foil, or boil a bunch on the stove and mash them. Then
    we eat some and freeze the rest. They stay for a good
    month or more. Speaking of which, I have to do that
    more often. Comparatively, potatoes are pretty cheap
    as a side dish.
