Please note, that they have not been cured yet so we recommend using them within 1-2 months.

If you would like to store your sweet potatoes longer than that, you can cure them at home by placing the sweet potatoes in a single layer in a plastic bag, poke a few holes. close the bag, and place in a warm window or anywhere that gets warm. If there is a draft in some of these locations, then you can place a towel or a quilt over them. Wait 10 days. The potatoes that are firm and moist are ready. The sweet potatoes that are soft should be discarded. Once cured, the sweet potatoes should be stored in a cool, dry area.
