Keep Peeled Potatoes Fresh

This simple tip makes it easy to prepare potatoes ahead, by keeping them as fresh and white as when you peeled them!

If you're peeling and dicing potatoes for a stew or other dish, you can prepare them a few days ahead and store them in the refrigerator, in a container filled with water. To keep them from turning brown or becoming mushy when cooked, add some white vinegar (1 Tbsp. per 2 cups water) before submerging the potatoes.
