Can I Cut Potatoes The Night Before Eating Them Without Them Turning Brown?


I am having dinner at my home for approximately 20 people. To save time, I am wondering if I can cut potatoes the night before without them turning brown or losing flavor.


You can cut the potatoes the night before, however, make sure you place the chunks in water and add lemon juice (1 tablespoon per gallon of water) so they don’t oxidize.
