How To Make Potatoes Store Even Longer
Perhaps someone knows about the use of lime powder being sprinkled liberally over potatoes that are spread out on a floor. I saw this one time in an old abandoned house on a farm where two large families lived in Kentucky. They grew a lot of potatoes and kept them all winter by this method. I don’t know exactly why they used the lime, whether to keep away insects, mold, mice, etc., but those potatoes stayed in good shape for the winter. Maybe it helped with the freezing temperatures. I just don’t know. This is a very interesting article. Thanks for the opportunity to share my story.
