How to Freeze Sweet Potatoes | Muzzarelli Farms, Vineland NJ

Did you know that you can store sweet potatoes for up to 12 months in the freezer?

If you want to store your Muzzarelli Sweet potatoes for a long time, and storing in a cool, dark area is not an option (not everyone has such an area in their homes), or you want the sweet potatoes to last longer than 6 months, then you can store them in a freezer.

Never Freeze Raw Sweet Potatoes

The first thing to remember when freezing sweet potatoes is that they must be cooked before freezing. Due to their high water content, raw sweet potatoes easily get freezer burn when frozen, they can turn mushy or grainy when thawed, and most importantly, freezing raw sweet potatoes actually makes them spoil more quickly.

When freezing sweet potatoes, start with cleaning the sweet potatoes with water (no soap), then pat dry with a paper towel.
