This Simple Hack Means You’ll Never Have To Peel Potatoes Again

Anyone who has ever made mashed potatoes knows how time consuming it can be to peel the potatoes. That’s why so many are excited about a simple new hack that will make it so that you never need to peel potatoes again!

A video made by Foody Tube is going viral, and it will show you how you can skip the peeling process entirely and peel the potato in the process.

All you need to carry out this hack is a washed potato, a sharp knife and a saucepan filled with cold water. The first step is to grab a knife and slit the middle of the potato skin all the way around, making sure that you don’t cut into the actual flesh. To make this easier, you can twirl the potato around in one hand so the line is straight.

Once you have done this, put the potatoes in a saucepan of cold water and boil them until they are fork tender.  Then, drain the water and take out the potatoes. Let them cool down for a bit, then gently peel back each side of the potato skin.

Since the potatoes have been cooked, the skin should peel right off when you use your fingers to do so! This simple trick will save you tons of time cooking and will make removing the skin ever so easy.

I will definitely be trying out this hack next time I make potatoes! Check out the video for yourself below.
