Storing potatoes in cold temperatures

0
240

Potatoes stored below 40 degrees F will not sprout and will remain firm for
long periods. However, such storage will often lead to starches being
converted to sugars, which will give tubers an undesirable sweet taste.
Placing potatoes at room temperature for 2 to 3 days will allow sugars to be
converted back to starches and remove the objectionable taste.
