Freezing Idaho® Potatoes Ahead of Time

Q: Can I freeze raw potatoes? A: The simple answer for raw potatoes is no.  I can almost guarantee that freezing a sliced, peeled, diced or chunks of uncooked potatoes will lead to a disaster when you go to use them later. Don’t do it. The potatoes will turn black and possibly slimy; depending on how far in advance of an event you do it. Cook the potatoes, and then they can be frozen.
