I found another little note, which I do want to use, maybe even today, since we can’t go through a 10-pound bag of potatoes as fast as we used to do. To make your own hash browns for the freezer, simply peel and grate potatoes. Keep the grated ones covered with water in a bowl. Then drain and blanch (put in boiling water) for 3 minutes. Drain again and package for the freezer. Use to make regular hash browns or in recipes like Funeral Potatoes. I want to try them as a crust for quiche.
