How to Store Sweet Potatoes
Contrary to popular belief, you do not want to store sweet potatoes in the fridge. In an ideal world, they’ll do best if the temperature is between 55 and 60 degrees Fahrenheit.
Don’t wash the sweet potatoes before storage. This could lead to premature spoiling. Instead, wash them right before you’re ready to use them.
If you really need them to last a while, you can cure them before they reach their final cool destination.
Cure them at around 70 degrees Fahrenheit for about 15 to 20 days. Then you can move them to a cooler temp, ideally in a spot that is dark and humid.
Wrap the potatoes in newspaper or brown paper and place them in a box.
How to Prepare Sweet Potatoes
Sweet potatoes are beyond delicious, but I’ve had my fair share of struggles with trying to get them clean enough for my liking.
Even though this particular recipe calls for the potatoes to be peeled, I still want to make sure they’re in good shape.
Remember to be especially careful if you did not buy organic potatoes. You don’t want to be serving up potential chemicals and pesticides.
You can try scrubbing them under cold water with a vegetable brush. Remove any eyes before peeling.
Vinegar is also a helpful tool for washing fruits and vegetables. You can soak your potatoes in water with a splash of white vinegar before rinsing with water.
A clean sponge with a scratchy side is another effective tool you can use to wash sweet potatoes.
When you’re ready to peel, I’ve had a lot of luck with y-peelers. They’re inexpensive and tend to work better than the kind that swivel.

Unfortunately, for you meat and potato lovers, “regular” potatoes are not autoimmune protocol friendly.
White potatoes belong to the nightshade family. Nightshades contain lectins and saponins, which contribute to leaky gut and inflammation.
