  • Anyone else have a potato pile mounting in their kitchen? Keep them dry and well ventilated! They do best when placed in a well-ventilated container (paper bag or bowl works) and stored in a dry location, away from sunlight, and at temperatures between 45 and 55 degrees F. Refrigerator temperatures tend to increase their sweetness and make them brown very quickly when fried. #potatoes #storage #storageveggies #paveggies #seasonal #vegetables #pennsylvania #rootveggies #buyfreshbuylocalpa #papreferred #paproduce #homegrownhappiness
