My neighbors peel, wash, freeze in ziplok bags as mentioned above. I keep mine in racks I built - just some 1x4 frames with chicken wire bottoms. I dig them, let them air cure for a week or 2, then throw then in the racks (leave the dirt residue on, dont wash). The key is to have the air flow through them. Mine dig in May and last till Thanksgiving that way.
