If you can’t stomach eating 8 lbs of potatoes at once, you can
freeze them IF you parcook them first.
If you freeze them uncooked, they will turn black.
To par cook, boil a large pot of water. I recommend scrubbing the
outsides and either slicing or cubing the potatoes. You can cook
them with or without the skins. Place the potatoes in the boiling
water. Boil for about 5 minutes. Drain, let cool, and then freeze in
whatever amount you want in freezer ziploc bags.
You can then use them for soups, casseroles, hash browns, etc.
