Can I Safely Freeze An Already Blanched Potato?


Can I safely freeze an already blanched potato?



Yes. Most commercial frozen potato products have been subject to a blanching or equivalent prior to packaging. This does two things: It helps prevent the potato from discoloring (as potato starch will convert to sugar when held too cold for too long a period, resulting in discoloration). Secondly, the potato can be prepared more quickly at the final preparation point.
