Can you keep shredded, raw potatoes over night?

Posted by   + Show Post

I'm making potatoes au gratin and accidentally set my food processor to shred instead of slice. Whoops! I don't want to waste the potatoes so, can I save them to make hash browns with in the morning? Do I need to keep them in water?

I've seen cooks put pre-cut or pre-peeled potatoes in water with lemon slices.  Makes sense, lemon juice keeps sliced apples from browning too.

I see that any advice is already to late, but for next time I guess :)

Next time try it my way. They will look exactly like the shredded hashbrowns you buy in the refrigerated section at the store.


Quoting KenzieQsMommy:

This is what I ended up doing. I was too tired to try to squeeze the water out, I just needed to get to bed. Cooking my hashbrowns now and while they dont look the best but they sure smell good!!
