Give them a good home
Did you know potatoes are in the top five most thrown-away food household items? Previously, it was thought that potatoes should be stored in a cool, dark place but a recent study has found that putting potatoes in the fridge can extend the life of potatoes up to 21 days (as opposed to 7 days). As a result, the FSA are now recommending we store out spuds in the fridge to avoid food waste, but don’t store with onions – the gases they each release cause the other to spoil.
Large potatoes are great for loading with hearty fillings – try baked sweet potato skins filled with spicy beans and topped with melting cheese for an easy, healthy meal.
