make sure they're thoroughly coated and place them in an airtight container. probably wouldn't hurt to put them in the coldest spot in your fridge.

    I googled this for you and found several websites that offer great suggestions, I've added the link to Martha Stewart in my answer and provided several other sites for alternative options that I've listed in the source box, hope they help !

    This is an article from Martha Stewart, I'm sure she won't steer you wrong:
    This is the website for Martha's tip:

    "Cover cut raw potatoes with water to stop them from turning brown. You can prepare them the night before and still have creamy white potatoes the next day.

    Start by scrubbing potatoes under cool running water to remove dirt; prepare as directed in recipe. Place in a bowl, and cover with cold water by 1 inch. Refrigerate; potatoes will keep up to overnight.

    Good Luck !

    Yes, just make certain to completely coat the potatoes with oil so as to keep a barrier between the air and the cut potatoes.

    Not... 100% sure, but if you have a nice coating of marinade... it might protect the cut surface from browning...

    The alternative is to cut and soak in water overnight... marinade the next day.

    Probally not, put them in water, and marinate them about an hour before you cook them.

    you will need some kind of acid, such as lemon juice, to keep them from turning brown.
