Hi
I have a large sack of potatos that is left in the sack. But after a while some of them (specily in the middle of the bag) start turning into milgue and go soggy and wrotten
Can I stop this please?

Thanks
BB

I'm no expert, but I take mine out of the bag and put them in a spare strainer, that lives in a dark cupboard. The airflow keeps things a bit better in my experience.

A little cooler than room temp, away from other kinds of produce, dim to dark conditions.

IF they don't breathe, they think they've been planted and start to sprout. Think of what makes potatoes grow and fosters the enzymatic process to initiate that - dark, moist, warm-ish, and enclosed - and remove as many of those factors as practical.

I know a lot of people say this is a no no but I refrigerate mine in a open container if I need to.
