Potatoes

Store potatoes in a cool, dark place at room temperature. Keep away from onions and add an apple to avoid early sprouting.

Moisture and exposure to light cause potatoes to spoil. To keep potatoes fresh for up to 2 weeks, loosely store them in a paper bag at room temperature. For long-term storage (up to 2-3 months), keep them in a cool, dry, dark place. Adding an apple to the mix will prevent potatoes from sprouting, while keeping onions nearby will actually cause them to sprout.
