James’ Top Food Tip #7 – Spuds…Keep em in the dark
Most vegetables keep best in the fridge, but a cool, dark place is also good if you lack fridge space. Potatoes should always be stored in the dark, otherwise they go green or sprout, making them inedible.
When spuds sprout, the starch in them has converted into sugar. However research suggests that if the main part of the potato is still firm, then it has most of its nutrients intact and can be eaten after removing the soft sprouted areas.
