I'm hosting Thanksgiving dinner and would like to do some of the dinner prep the day before. Potatoes turn grey after they're peeled, right? Not right away but eventually. If I peel and cut up the potatoes the night before, and store them in water in the fridge, will they turn grey? Will boiling them make the grey go away?

Any clue?

They won't turn gray if you soak them in water. Good luck on the preparations!

Exactly. Cover them with water, and they'll be fine for a day. No problem!
