The majority of Americans tends to buy very large sacks of potatoes ... Unfortunately, potatoes germinate quickly! See how to keep potatoes from sprouting.

  • Open the bag of potatoes.
  • Drop 1 apple (no matter the variety) in the middle of your bag of potatoes.
  • Put one or more, depending on the amount of potatoes you have to keep.

There you go! Simple, right?

Why does it work? Because the apple releases a gas, called ethylene, which prevents the potatoes from germinating.

* Keep your potato bag in a cabinet at room temperature in the dark. NEVER in the fridge! *
