The Infallible Trick To Forestall Potatoes From Sprouting.


There’s an old trick from grandma that works every time.

I tend to always buy the potatoes in bulk (the price per kilo is much lower).

Except that, most of the time, after a few weeks, the potatoes start to sprout.

How to do

1. Open the bag of potatoes.

2. deposit 1 apple in the middle of your bag of potatoes.

3. Add one or more, depending on the quantity of potatoes to be kept.


There you go, you can now store your potatoes without them sprouting 🙂

Easy, fast and effective, right?

The presence of the apple will slow down the formation of germs.

You will be able to keep potatoes looking perfect for more than 8 weeks.

Why does it work?

You wonder how it is possible?

Well, simply because the apple gives off a gas called ethylene which prevents the potatoes from sprouting.

Also be aware that onions and potatoes should never be stored together, as the latter will eventually soften and rot.
