Cooking with Potatoes


Potatoes should be stored in a cool, dark, and well-ventilated place, such as a cellar or pantry. Avoid storing them in the refrigerator, as it can cause their starches to convert into sugar.

Prep Tip

Use waxy potato varieties, like fingerlings, when making potato salad, and starchy potatoes, like Russets, for mashed potatoes.


Potatoes are available year-round but are commonly harvested in the late summer and early fall.
