Eventually, they will start to sprout especially as the temperature gets warmer and if they are in the sunlight. Can you safely use and eat them once they sprout? Check out this short video for the answers! A few storage tips to remember: keep these items in a cool (ideally 45-55 degF), dry, dark spot for best results. DO NOT refrigerate. DO NOT store potatoes and onions together.
