It’s hard not to love the texture of roasted potatoes, or mashed potatoes, or deep-fried potatoes. But getting them all peeled and prepped can be a bit of a nightmare. And let’s be honest, no one likes using a vegetable peeler on such a slippery vegetable — it’s far too easy to cut a finger. So skip the peeler altogether and prepare to make that potato slide right out of its skin… literally.

Materials

  • potatoes
  • pot of water
  • tongs
  • bowl full of ice water

Directions

  1. Bring pot of water to a boil.
  2. Place potatoes into pot of boiling water until cooked.
  3. Remove potatoes from hot water, and place them directly into the cold water. Let them sit for five seconds.
  4. Use your hands to peel off potato skin — it should slip right off.
