How Do You Keep Peeled Potatoes Fresh?

Answer

When potatoes are peeled, they are immediately made susceptible to enzymatic browning causing discoloration which reduces their quality. To keep the potatoes fresh, without losing color and texture, wash them thoroughly fist. This will remove as much starch as possible from the surface to avoid blackening. Put in a container and cover with cold water then refrigerate. If keeping for more than a day, change the water at least once a day.
