How To Peel A Potato


I am concerned for the security of our great Nation; not so much because of any threat from without, but because of the insidious forces working from within. Douglas MacArthur

Lol, that really made me smile. And I learned something new! Go figure.

I refuse to let adventure leave me in the dust. The time of my life is out there, I just have to go get it.

That's amazing! I'm going to try it out next time I make potatoes.
I feel bad for that actress though, how she has to keep referring to her role in Gilligan's Island, as if she thinks that's the only way to keep people interested or something.

while I love Gilligans Island, I was not watching because she kept referring to her role in the show.....I was watching to find out if the way to peel potatoes would be easier than using a potato peeler lol. I love potatoes but I hate peeling them :) I'll be sure and try that next time haha

Uh... I almost always boil the potatoes with the peeling on, let them cool and then peel, if I feel like it. Half the time, we just eat the peelings.

Have been doing this since I was a kid! This is new?

That's what I mean! It seems like whoever wrote the commercial made her keep saying that to try to keep people interested or something, when really I don't think anyone cares who is teaching us how to peel a potato.

To those who do this: This may sound like a dumb question but, once you take the peel off, do you have to boil the potato some more for it to be fully cooked? I mean, it would be rather cold haha.

Don't dump it in cold water, just stick a fork in it because it's too hot to hold --your literal hot potatoe <g>, and peel it hot with a paring knife. You don't "cut" the peeling off this way, you just lift a small piece and a big piece peels off for you.
