To keep peeled potatoes fresh, scrub off any leftover peels or browning using a knife. To keep them fresh for as long as a week, submerge the potatoes in cold water and refrigerate.

  1. Scrub off any leftover peels

    Use a sharp knife to scrub leftover peels on the potatoes. Ensure no dirt particles remain on the surface. Wash the potatoes after you're finished.

  2. Submerge in cold water

    Take a plastic bowl big enough to accommodate all your peeled potatoes. Add enough cold water to cover the potatoes entirely. Seal the bowl with a tight lid.

  3. Refrigerate the container

    After sealing the peeled potatoes, put your plastic container into the refrigerator. This keeps the potatoes completely fresh for a minimum of 2-3 days and up to a week.
