Easy Way to Peel Potatoes

This Hack Will Forever Change the Way You Peel Potatoes

"When I saw a trick for removing potato skins by slipping them off without using the dreaded vegetable peeler, I knew I had to try it immediately to see if it worked. YouTube user Foody Tube's amazing potato hack video claims you can skip the peeling process before boiling the potatoes and, instead, squeeze the skin straight off the potatoes once they're fully cooked. It sounds almost too good to be true, but guess what? It works.

Here's how to do it right:" https://www.popsugar.com/food/Easy-Way- ... s-42748936

The article has a link to the youtube video, but I can't get there at work.

I berl potatoes maybe once or twice a year to make mashed potatoes for holiday meals, and I've already done one batch the old way last Friday with a traditional potato peeler. The next time I get to try this will be Christmas Day. If anybody is gonna berl some taters this Thursday, please give this method a test drive and send us a comprehensive written report complete with photographs, I mean, let us know how it goes.

potatoes are pretty easy to peel after cooking them (aside from them being hot). Cooking them in the skins also keeps the nutrition higher. Another trick is to boil them in their skins and then put them through a food mill. I find that is a lot work to crank them through though.

As an aside, my browser said that link was unsafe to follow, that it could allow a virus.

Haven't peeped at the link yet; been busy over there on some work. But let the Kitchen Aid folks tell it, their -- and millions have been sold -- base stand has a veggie-peeler go-go gadget that said to be able to not only peel spuds in a flash, but can turn skins into a plethora of designs, also.
