Store Potatoes in the same way as you’d store anything else. You can buy store potatoes from any grocer or grocery store, and they will be of good quality. If you take care of them and wash them, they’ll last longer. Be sure to drain and rinse them well after use to help extend their lifespan.
Peel them. You can use a mild potato peeler, but a regular potato peeler is too rough on the surface. Try to avoid using a paper bag as this will remove the vitamins from the skin and leave them dry. Since potatoes are rather delicate, washing with soap and water is recommended.
When you cook with potatoes, they will lose moisture very quickly so you should ensure that when they are done cooking, they are cool enough to handle. Cook the potatoes slowly, at least until they are tender, and when you can peel them without breaking. After all, you do not want your potatoes to fall apart when you cook them.
There are many ways to store potatoes. The most important is to keep them in a dry, cool, and dark place where they won’t get wet or get smothered by other food. Put them in the fridge in a deep freezer or in airtight plastic bags. Never use paper, cardboard, or plastic bags to store them. They may seem to be fine for use, but they simply get ruined.
Keep them in the fridge or in an airtight container at room temperature. If they’re kept at room temperature, they will keep longer.
Wash them as needed and place them in the fridge. The longer potatoes stay out of the water, the better they will keep.
Store potatoes in the crisper, in the freezer, or in the microwave. To save space, put them in a plastic bag and put it in the freezer for later use. Do not place the bag in the fridge. When they come to room temperature, stick them in the crisper.
Make sure to read the nutrition facts before you purchase any product. Many times they are listed in terms of servings per package. It is also recommended that you read up on what ingredients are present in each product.
Refrigerate food in the crisper as much as possible. The longer it sits, the more water it will absorb. It will take a day or two for the food to start retaining its new vitamins.
Scrub potatoes clean when they are in the oven. There may be chemicals in the pans that can affect the vitamins. Use a toothbrush to make sure they are clean and get rid of any dirt.
There are many ways to store potatoes. Choose one that is best for you and your family and be sure to read labels carefully.
