How to keep your potatoes from sprouting


Best method to keep your potatoes fresh:

  1. Remove from the plastic bag and dry them out before storing. Storing damp potatoes will cause them to sprout faster and rot easily.
  2. Store in a basket, brown paper bag or a breathable cotton storage bag. (Psst….try storing in your pre-loved pillowcase made from cotton.)
  3. Keep them in a dark and cool closet. However, it’s best to store them away from the kitchen heat. So, keep them away from the stove.
