The Best Storage Method To Keep Your Potatoes Fresh
To keep potatoes fresh for an extended period, proper storage is crucial. One effective method, as shared by TikTok culinary enthusiast Mai (@thycook), is to use mesh laundry bags.
Originally designed to protect delicate clothing during laundry, these bags allow for easy airflow and ensure your potatoes remain dry, thanks to their mesh construction.
Keep the bag in a cool, dry place with proper ventilation, and avoid closed spaces like containers, drawers, or cupboards, as the humidity in these places can lead to potato rot.
It's essential to store potatoes in a separate mesh bag, especially away from onions. Both these vegetables absorb and give off a lot of moisture, which can lead to rapid spoilage.
