Thanks for the recipe site. I've wanting to know what to do with potatoes as well & these are some great recipes :thumb:I can't keep potatoes from sprouting either, so I always have to do something with them when I get a good deal. I've made grated hashbrowns, stuffed potatoes, french fries, and mashed potatoes, all go in the freezer.
This is where I got the recipe for stuffed potatoes:
There are directions there for hashbrowns/fries/mashed as well as some other recipes.
I think potatoes can be stored for quite a while under the right conditions. That's what our ancestors used to do, same as with all root crops. I was told that potatoes that you buy in the store have been stored up to six months, so definitely keep an eye on them. Sometimes the potatoes in the stores have something sprayed on them to keep them from sprouting eyes, but I have no idea what is used.
Potatoes are one of those items that seem to be getting more and more expensive to buy. I can't believe that I have seen them for as much as $4 for a 10 lb. bag. Rediculous!
Yes I have done this. We raise potatoes in our garden every year and if you stay on top of checking them they will last for months. But you have to go thru them and check them and make sure you do not have any starting to rot. If you do get them out. They will quickly rot the others.Have you done this? How long can you store them? Thanks!
Thanks...Where do you put them and what do you store them in? I would love to try growing potatoes in my garden again..I did it once but they had some kind of disease and I didn't even eat one of them..Have you ever used a barrel or clean garbage can to grow them in? I would like to try that route..Sorry for so many questions...Yes I have done this. We raise potatoes in our garden every year and if you stay on top of checking them they will last for months.
