Store potatoes in a cool, dry, dark place. Potatoes will keep well for several weeks. Warmer temperatures encourage sprouting and shriveling. Sprouting potatoes can still be used. Remove the sprouts and eyes completely and then peel before cooking. Do not refrigerate potatoes.
Prepared potatoes are easily frozen in an air tight container. Fresh potatoes can be blanched, cooled, packaged in an airtight container and frozen.
