My mother in law gave me some potatoes. We don't like potatoes but I put some when I make some soup. It makes the soup sweet and think. We eat the soup but not the potatoes. Me and hubby are compatible when eating soup. We just the soup and leave the vegetables. So potatoes are always thrown out. I don't put potatoes in every soup that I cook. So a box of potatoes are too much for the two of us.
When I have much potatoes, they usually get rot so my mother in law told me to wrap them with newspaper. I wanted to complain but because I'm a good daughter in law, even when it's against my will, I have to follow her. Or else she would call me every now and then and ask If I already did what she said. To avoid those kind of phone calls from her, I did what she said and right! The potatoes stayed fresh in the refrigerator. It's sometimes good to follow what elders say.
Here's what I did. I wrapped each potatoes with newspaper and put in the plastic bag before I put in the refrigerator. You try and see the result.
