But after seeing this, I will never do that again. I've discovered a trick on how to remove potato skins in just seconds - and without needing to grab your potato peeler from the kitchen drawer.
It's as simple as you can imagine - simply boil the potato a few minutes, then slip into ice cold water for 5-10 seconds.
The next step is what might surprise - especially how easy it is! Watch the video below for full instructions - you won't regret it.
This just inspired me to make a big potato salad next weekend to pair with burgers at a barbecue I'll be having ... the timing couldn't have been better :)
