Produce 101 - Potatoes

Picking the best
When selecting potatoes of any kind or size should be firm, relatively smooth, clean, reasonably well shaped. They should not be badly cut, bruised, wilted, sprouted or have a green tinge to them. Size does not affect quality and is a matter of personal choice.

Store potatoes in a cool, dry and dark area for several months. To avoid greening on the skin of the potatoes keep away from sunlight or artificial light; green potatoes will taste bitter and consuming large amounts may cause illness.
