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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
