Frozen Potatoes Turned Black When Thawed

I froze several gallon bags of peeled and chopped potatoes for hashbrowns. When I thawed them out they turned black. Should I throw them out or is there away to use them?

I wouldn't eat them. The only way to freeze potatoes is to either cook them all the way through, or at least par-cook them, otherwise they will turn black, and the texture suffers, too. Sorry - I hate to waste food, too!

I had the same problem. Should have par cooked them before freezing. However, I cooked them and ate them. they tasted fine and looked terrible. I had read an article prior to cooking that they are safe to eat as long as they weren't sitting out overnight, or had any dairy products mixed in.

So far I feel fine. Will let you know if that changes.
