I recall my aunt buying those red nylon bags of red potatoes. She’d pick out any rotten ones and then put the bag under the sink. Sweet Potatoes were stored in paper bags (never the plastic store bags) under the sink.
Is that still considered the best place?
I worry about roaches and other bugs. I had a roach infestation a few years ago. I signed up with a pest company and it took repeated spraying over a 4 month period to get rid of them. I’ve been roach free for about 5 years now and still get quarterly sprayings. I never want those things back. Are potatoes under the sink just inviting bug trouble?
I’ve been buy just 3 or 4 potatoes (red or sweet) and storing them on the counter. I try to use them within a week or two. I know the counter isn’t a good storage area. I just found a rotten sweet potato that I bought 2 weeks ago. I’ve never understood why sometimes they sprout and other times they rot.
