Keeping Peeled Asparagus and Peeled Potatoes

Unkle Al | Mar 26, 2014 10:12 AM

To anyone that has worked in catering or restaurant kitchens:

I am having a large party in a couple of weeks. I would like to prep as much as possible in advance.

My questions are:

Can I peel asparagus the day before cooking them. Typically, I store unpeeled asparagus in the refrigerator in a container with a little water in the bottom?

Can I store peeled potatoes in cold water in the refrigerator? Since I am making mashed potatoes will storing them as noted reduce the starch in the potatoes?

Thank you for any help you can offer.
