    How long before potatoes go bad?

    I just bought a big ol sack of white taters, i'm wondering how long they'll stay good for? My mom (yes my mom) says 2-3 weeks, a food storage guideline site says 2-3 months...Whats the verdict?

    I asked my mom about this one also. She said that you can usually feel them when they go bad. I've had some that have even started roots before, but you just cut them off and they're good to go again. I've had them for over a month and used them, just depends on how fresh they are I guess.

    I would think you could feel them get mushy when they're too far gone.

    Meh, what do people from Ireland know about potatoes?








    You're born, you take sh*t. You get out in the world, you take more sh*t. You climb a little higher, you take less sh*t. Till one day you're up in the rarefied atmosphere and you've forgotten what sh*t even looks like. Welcome to the layer cake, son.

    Well, I'm an Idaho boy where spuds are basic. They have big spud cellers half underground where they store potatoes for months before selling or shipping them off. Keep them in a cool, dark place (NOT the fridge) and they'll last for months. Even if they get a little rubbery they are still okay. Yes, cut off any roots that start to grow. You'll know if they are bad--brown spot inside or rotten smell.

    I've kept mine around 2-4 months depending on the heat. If there are really tiny sprouts, just cut them off. If there are larger sprouts or if the potato feels tender, it's time to buy a new bag.
