Question: How do you keep russet potatoes from turning brown if you peel them in advance of roasting them.

Hold them in a bowl of cold water and be sure to dry them if you are planning to roast them raw. Personally, I prefer to give them a quick parboil, drain the water (which is nice to save for gravy) and give them a quick couple of shakes so that the surface of the potatoes become fluffy/course (which makes for great crispiness during roasting given the greater surface area of the potato), and then roast.

I keep mine in cold water with a little salt.
