Peel and grate your fresh, raw, russet potatoes and place the grated potatoes in a medium sized mixing bowl filled halfway with cold water. Once all of the potatoes are grated, squeeze the excess liquid and starch from the grated potatoes and place them onto paper towels until you have squeezed the water and starch from all of your grated potatoes. Pat the grated potatoes dry before frying them.
Preheat a large frying pan or skillet and olive oil to medium high heat. Portion hash browns into serving size patties (if desired) or place into oiled, heated frying pan and allow both sides to brown thoroughly. Add salt, pepper, turmeric, and dried chives for seasoning and cook for approximately 4 minutes per side. Add any toppings desired and allow to cook until (as in our example with sharp cheddar) the cheese is melted.
