Q:

How do you store peeled potatoes overnight?

A:

Store peeled potatoes overnight by submerging them in a bowl of water with some added lemon juice, and storing in the refrigerator. This keeps potatoes fresh and prevents the brown discoloration.

  1. Gather the needed items

    You need a potato peeler, a knife, paper towels, large spoon, large bowl, lemon juice and plastic wrap.

  2. Wash the potatoes

    Start by thoroughly scrubbing the potatoes under running water. Remove as much dirt from the potatoes’ surface as possible. After washing the potatoes, pat them dry with a paper towel.

  3. Peel and chop the potatoes

    Use a potato peeler or a sharp knife to peel the skins from the potatoes. Rinse the potatoes in water after peeling and then chop for the intended purpose, such as into cubes.

  4. Put the potatoes in the bowl of water and store in the refrigerator

    Fill the large bowl with cold water. Squeeze a small amount of lemon juice into the water, and mix with a large spoon to ensure even distribution. Add the potatoes to the water, and make sure all of the potatoes are submerged in the water. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap to prevent spilling, and place the bowl in the refrigerator. Store overnight or for up to 24 hours.
