When buying potatoes to use in potatoes recipes, you want to look for clean, smooth, firm-textured potatoes that have no cuts, bruises or discoloration. You want to store potatoes in a well-ventilated, cool place. Colder temperatures, such as in the refrigerator, cause the starch in a potato to convert to sugar, which results in a sweet taste and discoloration when cooked. If you refrigerate potatoes, be sure to let the potato warm gradually to room temperature before cooking to help reduce the discoloration. Avoid areas to store potatoes that reach high temperatures such as beneath the sink or beside large sized appliances or areas that receive too much sunlight such as the countertop. Paper bags and perforated plastic bags offer the best environment for extending potato shelf-life. Make sure to keep potatoes out of the light. You don't want to wash potatoes or any produce, for that matter before you store it. Dampness in produce promotes early spoilage. When you find green on the skin of a potato, that is build-up of a chemical that is known as Solanine. This is a natural reaction to the potato being exposed to too much light. The solanine produces a bitter taste and if eaten in large quantities can cause illness. If there is slight greening, you wan to cut away the green portions of the potato skin before you cook or eat in potatoes recipes.
