storing potatoes?

rathdrumidOctober 26, 2010

Hi all,

I grew way too many potatoes this year. most are still in the ground, as i don't know what to do with them all. they are all fingerling-which don't store for a super long time.

for freezing, i think you have to cook them somehow?

i really love roasted potatoes in the oven. Do you see anyway I preserve the potatoes that would still taste good roasted later?

You can freeze or can them - either way would work fine for roasting later. Freezing is probably easier but canning them provides much longer storage. We usually can about 25-30 quarts of potatoes each year to use all sorts of ways - mashed, fried, roasted, shredded for hash browns, scalloped, potato salad, etc. A quick and easy way to add potatoes to just about any meal.

Another good way is dehydrating potato slices. That is very popular with many for long term storage and easy use.

NCHFP provides the detailed instructions for both pressure canning, dehydrating, and freezing.
