Potato

General Potato Info

For a longer shelf life, select potatoes that are firm, smooth, well-shaped and free from sprouts. Potatoes are a good pantry storage item; storing them near onions will decrease their longevity.

Short Term Potato Storage

From the time you peel the potato until it is used in the dish, store peeled potatoes in water to prevent them from turning a dark color.

Refrigerate New potatoes if they will not be consumer within 2 or 3 days.

Store potatoes in a brown paper bag in a cool, dry location away from light; they will hold their freshness for 2 to 3 weeks.

Potato Long Term Storage

Do not freeze raw potatoes as they become watery; thawed frozen cooked potatoes aren't that great.

Potato Side Notes

There are many varieties of potato with different intended uses. Some of the more common ones are: Bintje, Blue, Caribe, Fingerling, Huckleberry, New, Oca, Purple Peruvian, Red, Russet, White Round, Yellow Finn, and Yukon Gold.
