I thought potatoes and onions could last for months, but mine always go bad if I don’t eat them within a week or so. How do I store them to keep them longer, or can I? Are there certain types unlike the kinds I find at the grocery store? What’s the best way to store them?
Potatoes and onions can last for months but they should be stored in a cool dry environment. One week is a short time for them to start to go bad. Try to buy the freshest produce available. I grow varieties that have good storage qualities. Red Norlands, Kennebecs and Yukon Golds all store well for me.
