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.
