Save Time Peeling Potatoes Like This

Peeling potatoes may not be a hassle when there’s just a few. Add a couple dozen and you may be in a time crunch trying to get through them all. Follow this one trick to speed the entire process along and make life a whole lot easier.

You may be boiling your potatoes after washing and peeling, but try boiling them before (or par-boil if you’ll be cooking them later on in a soup) with their skins on. After, drain and let them cool for a few minutes until you’re able to handle them. The potatoes will be more tender and the skin can be peeled easily.

Par-boiled potatoes offer some benefits too. They’ll absorb less water ensuring they won’t be gluey when mashed. Potato skins also contain flavor which you will retain with this method.
