We love potatoes in all shapes and sizes, we are the land of the potato eaters for a reason. Baked, roasted, mashed , as rösti, fries, oven potatoes , chips or just as a boiled potato with gravy, we can’t get enough of it. Only peeling, you can really look up to, so we sometimes ignore the potato. But no worries: we now give you the fastest way to peel potatoes!
Drum roll : first boil the potato in the skin, then you can easily remove the skin afterwards!
Peel potatoes quickly
The trick to peeling potatoes very quickly is really easy: wash the potatoes well and boil them . Drain the potatoes and let them cool for a while or you can hold them with a tea towel. You will see that with a small knife you can scrape everything off the potatoes in no time. Easy & super tasty boiled potatoes with gravy.
Cooking in the skin is healthier
Actually, you can eat the skin of a potato, especially that of a potato from the new crop. In the case of a baby potato or roseval potato, you don’t really think twice about this and just eat it. The vitamins and minerals of a potato (and of vegetables and fruit at all) are mainly located directly under its outer skin. If we very clumsily peel off half of the potato with our potato peeling knives, you also peel away a lot of vitamins. And that’s a shame!
Tip : eat potato with the skin more often, that saves a lot of time and is also healthier! Win win!
