Russet potato storage and handling tips:
- Store your russet potatoes in a cool, dry space
- Refrain from storing your potatoes in a refrigerator. This can cause the starches in the potato to convert into sugars causing a sweeter taste. It can also cause a discoloration when cooked.
- Avoid storage areas that can reach high temperatures or over exposure to light – this will affect the longevity of the potato.
