    I've never tried freezing them, but I keep a huge sack in the dark, dry and cool and they keep for weeks x

    mine have already started to get some condensation on them and there's LOADS of them to use up!! i'll move them into the cupboard but i think that might make them sprout now. It'd be really good if i could pre-cut them into chips though.

    Yes, you can freeze them. I would par-boil them, not too much, then spread them out on trays and open-freeze them. Then portion them up and put them into freezer bags. That way they won't all freeze in one big lump!

    I'd also suggest par-boiling them. Had chips tonight, they were so nice!

    If you take them out of the plastic bag and store them in the dark in paper or a pillowcase or something in which they can 'breathe' they will be fine. It's only the plastic that causes the condensation. I never, EVER keep vegetables of any sort in the plastic they come in. Potatoes will last weeks/months in a dry, dark place.

    I never really worry about them going off. I once had a sack of them for 2 months and they were fine. Cut the eyes off and you're good to go. Haha Xx

    I do the same!!



    You could stick them all in the oven in foil and bake them then freeze them whole and take em out as you need them :) that way you can cut off the skins and reheat and use em for mash, or use for roasties, chips baked potatos or potato skins.
