I’m Using a Raw Potato for Holiday Card Prints, How Long Will the Potato Last in the Refrigerator?

Q:

I'm carving a raw white potato to make potato prints for my holiday cards. How long will a raw carved potato keep in the fridge?

A:

Even the good potato doctor remembers this craft project as a kid! Cut raw potatoes will hold up well refrigerated for several days. However, expect the cut surface to discolor and oxidize. If the prints aren’t as clear as when you began, try trimming off a thin layer with a sharp paring knife.
