Potatoes are usually at their cheapest during the winter months. When you find a good sale, stock up. Potatoes have a long storage life if you store them properly. Here are some tips on storing potatoes:
- Remove any potatoes that have broken skins, these are not good to store.
- Layer your potatoes in ventilated containers, like crates or baskets. Place newspaper between each layer.
- Potatoes need to be stored in temperatures between 35-40 degrees, a basement or root cellar is ideal.
- Check your stored potatoes for any that might be going bad. This should be done every few weeks. One bad potato can destroy all of the potatoes around it.
