How Do I Freeze Potatoes?

Q: My CSA just informed me that shareholders will be receiving up to 10 pounds of potatoes each week for the next four weeks! I want to preserve 1/3 of them in some way to avoid possible spoiling. I thought I could make frozen hashbrowns, but do not have experience with freezing potatoes. Does anyone have a good method for freezing grated potatoes that prevents the potatoes from turning mushy upon thawing?

Editor: Lexy, we actually have never frozen potatoes, but we'd also love to know any tips the readers have! Does anyone out there freeze potatoes or hash browns?
