The pantry is the best place to store sweet potatoes.
Store in a cool, dry, dark place, ideally in a cloth bag.
Can I Freeze It?
To freeze, wash, peel and boil sweet potatoes until tender, then slice or mash and sprinkle with lemon juice to stop them from going brown. Cool, put into a container or freezer bag and freeze.
Fresher For Longer
To store leftover cooked sweet potatoes, cool them as quickly as possible, ideally within one or two hours, and then store in the fridge for up to two days. If a section of the sweet potato goes bad, the entire potato should be composted.
Use It Up
Use a potato peeler rather than a knife as this will cut down on waste. There’s also no need to peel – you can boil, roast or mash sweet potatoes with the skins on!

Sweet potato fries are a great alternative to potato fries.
