    Keeping Hash Browns from Discoloring

    I'm sure everyone in the world except me knows this !!!!
    Whe you are going to make hash browns grate them into a strainer sitting in a bowl of cold water. Wash them about 4 times (removes all the startch and this is what makes them go grey) Remove strainer from water and let the taters drain well. I then put them in a bowl with paper towels to drain further - I cooked them over a slow heat 20 min each side 1/2" deep, and had perfect crisp crunchy hash browns. Of course I put in some garlic & salt & pepper
    I did not find that removing the starch changed the flavor of the potatoe.

    I didn't know that either, Bergy. Thanks for sharing. I also read somewhere recently (probably on Zaar) that if you add 1/2 tsp. cream of tartar to the water it keeps them from discoloring. I haven't tried it yet, though.
