How do you store your sweet potatoes?
Here are some tips on how I store my sweet potatoes so they can stay fresh, sweet and delicious whenever your craving strikes:
Follow the proper storage procedures carefully:
Avoid storing sweet potatoes in the refrigerator, which will produce a hard center and unpleasant taste, Instead, store your sweet potatoes in a cool, dry, well ventilated container. For best results, store them in a basement or root cellar away from strong heat sources.
Wrap sweet potatoes in old newspapers or paper bag to prevent them from getting rotten easily.
Note: Your sweet potatoes can store for up to two weeks if stored properly.

Depends on the vegetable, but the best way to store Irish potatoes is to reduce the moisture in it a little, that is sunning a bit. Before placing it in a cool, and well ventilated area away from heat.

I stored my sweet potato up to a month in a dry area on top of sand and well spread. I sprinkle some water on to of the potato weekly to keep the sand a bit moist and dry. The second method used is to sprinkle ashes on the potato and keep in an open dry corner of the store.
You store sweet potato in a dry shaded area away from water and heavy sunshine.
If stored in a paper bag won’t it get heated up?

They do best at around 45 degrees F, which is about 10 degrees warmer than the average refrigerator. Most of us don’t have a root cellar (a cool, dark place to store root vegetables like potatoes ), so keeping them in a paper bag (in a cooler) spot like a pantry is best.
You can try a big hole in the farm. Inside the hole put ash to cover the basement and the body of the hole. Put your sweet potatoes there and cover again with ash. With this you can store for long time like 6 months and sell when the season is over. You can also have opportunity to keep plenty of them. Wash thoroughly before you sell or eat. The ash has not effect on the sweet potatoes.
