For this week:  a question from Andrew of Wullmington Delaware.

Andrew is looking for an easy way to peal potatoes.


My response:

Andrew, pealing potatoes may not appeal to us at the best of times but here is how I deal with it.


First I boil my potatoes.

Next I let them stand in very warm water for at least five minutes.

Then with a sharp pairing knife I proceed to peal from top to bottom.

Most times I can use my fingers to peal the potatoes.


You can tell the difference between the peal that is left against the potato itself.

The skin is rough and the potato itself is smooth.


Does anyone have any other suggestions?
