    put them in a pot of cold water and bring them just to a boil. When they get “frothy” on the top remove them and rinse with cold water to stop the cooking. This removes the starch, so they won’t turn black. Also put them in water and let them soak overnight. This also removes quite a bit of the starch that causes them to turn black.

    Freezing Potatoes

    Shred a bunch of potatoes and blanch in salted boiling water for about a minute… immediately dump potatoes into iced water to stop cooking… dry with a towel and freeze into serving size bags for use in latkes, hash browns, etc.
    The same can be done with thin or thick sliced potatoes and later used for cottage fries, potato salad etc. or cut into strips as for French fries

      To prevent potatoes, eggs, apples, avocados, bananas, lettuce or anything that turns dark is DO NOT USE METAL. Slice these things with a heavy plastic knife or better yet, purchase a Yoshi knife. Not trying to be a commercial for them but I bought one a few months ago and within 2 months, I had spent almost $200.00 on them for friends as gifts. They think I am the best friend they have ever had. Bot back to things turning dark, the medal ozidizes and causes these things to turn dark. Best of all, no lemon juice is needed to squeeze on things to prevent the turning. Not everything needs lemon juice.
