Keeping Potatoes Longer


  When you buy them you can never know how old potatoes are, and often they start sprouting eyes before you use them. We were always told to store them in a cardboard box left in a cool place which didn't make a lot of difference. Then our friend and ASOH team member in the UK said: "I put mine in the fridge." He also mentioned that it was best to let the potatoes reach room temperature before cooking.
  Anyway, we tried it, placing half a dozen spuds in the vegie drawer of the fridge and left the rest in the box. As you can see from the picture it works. Why not give it a go - what have you got to lose, except for a few unwanted eyes?
