It may be second nature to stash just about anything in the fridge, but this produce actually stays fresher at room temperature. No need storing them in the fridge, we learn everyday.
- Potatoes: Cold temperatures convert potato starch into sugar. This results in a gritty texture and a slightly sweet flavor. Potatoes do best at 45° F (most refrigerators are set from 35° F to 38° F). Store them in a paper bag in the cool pantry.
