    Canned potatoes

    OK yall. The wife found 50 pound bags of potatoes for 3 US Dollars.
    I purchased her 3 bags.
    We have done 21 quarts of them, just peeled and chunked, and they have soaked up pretty much all the water from inside the jar?
    She is scared to proceed, because the glorious interwebs tell us that they will be fine, just that they will loose color on the dry areas?


    We are going into the blanching and freezing stage next, and I will also try some dehy flakes for instant mashed.
    Also, wanna try the instant pot, suppose to make great mashed pots, quickly.
    Any recipes that are tried and true, from yall?

    root cellar Debbo, no light, paper grocery bags work great, in plastic they will rot

    Even a regular cellar away from furnace/rodents, will last till spring.

    When they sprout, plant them!

    I have a crawl space, and was thinking of putting some in. I thought if packed in sawdust or sand, they wouldn't sprout?
    I appreciate the no plastic, cause I was thinking totes.

    Got to keep rodents out. Temperature above freezing. NOOOOO light, they turn green/poisonous.

    Plastic totes would work if they can breathe and mice can't get in., FOOD GRADE? Don't layer too many, and remove any rotters ASAP. Sawdust/sand NO! That's for carrots, they live fine like that, in sand overwinter.

    My mom did the usual root cellar storage + canning. But She basically under cooked or par boiled the potatoes first to stop all cellular action.
