I tried just one time years ago to simply peel raw, shred and freeze and they were awful when I went to fry them ;-) What has worked best for me since them is to peel, boil until almost tender, room temp cool, shred and then freeze :-)

I shred my potatoes and put them in salted cold water, then I blanch them for about a minute in boiling water, drain and freeze.

You need to blanch potato no matter how you cut them so bring a large pot of water to a full boil blanch for 3 minutes and plunge into ice water cool completely, remove from water and pat thoroughly dry than place the potatoes in a plastic bag.
