How can I keep grated potatoes from turning black? I know, ice water, but here's the problem: I have to mix up a batch of ingredients for latkes and bring the stuff into my daughter's school on Friday morning, at which point we will cook them in an electric skillet in the classroom (the teacher thinks pre-cooked latkes will get hopelessly soggy, and I think she's right). So if I grate everything, mix in the eggs and flour and all, and put it in a chilled bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and put ice packs on top, will the low temperature prevent the oxidation? I don't see how I can grate the potatoes and then bring them to school in an ice bath - there's really no good way to squeeze out the water in the classroom. Help! Why did I agree to this project? ;)
