Potatoes

Store potatoes in a cool, dry, dark place or loosely in a paper bag.

Moisture and exposure to light can cause potatoes to spoil or turn green. Do not keep them in the refrigerator.

If you end up with some sprouts or green spots, cut them off and the rest of the potato is still fine to eat.

Did you know that most of the nutrient value of the potato is in the skin? If you're peeling your potatoes (or other vegetables), consider roasting the peels for a salty snack. Learn how from Food Shift's Chef Jen - Eat the Skin!
