  • torage location:
    • Pantry: When stored in a cool, dry, and dark place, like a pantry, uncooked potatoes can last for up to two months.
    • Refrigerator: Storing potatoes in the refrigerator is not recommended as it can cause them to develop an undesirable sweet taste and change their texture.
    • Freezer: While not the preferred method, potatoes can be frozen for up to 10-12 months. However, freezing can affect their texture and make them more suitable for mashed potatoes or soups than other preparations.
  • Condition of the potatoes:
    • Freshness: Choose firm potatoes with smooth skin and no blemishes or sprouts.
    • Damage: Avoid potatoes with cuts, bruises, or signs of spoilage.

Here's a quick summary:

  • Uncooked, in the pantry: Up to 2 months
  • Uncooked, in the refrigerator: Not recommended
  • Cooked, in the refrigerator: 3-4 days
  • Frozen: Up to 10-12 months (best for specific dishes)
