Resting potatoes in water pre-cook

e_bone | May 19, 2013 04:03 PM

I remember my mom cutting up potatoes for mashers and letting them sit in cold water as she finished other "mise" chores.

What are ramifications of doing this? How long before it's a problem? She makes great mashed potatoes btw.

Not sure how "absorbent" potatoes are...
