Buying Potatoes In Bulk

I asked for a BIG bag of potatoes. I was thinking I'd get 10 kilos; what I got was 25. Never mind; I had faith that we'd get through them.

And we have. And now we've bought another 25 kilo bag.

2 tips for storing potatoes:

1. Keep them in the dark. We left ours in their heavy duty paper sack.

2. Put two or three apples in with them. I don't know why this works but it seems to- because our potatoes didn't rot or sprout. My bro-in-law says it may be to do with the apples radiating acidity.
