2. Peel Your Potatoes

Some people don’t peel their potatoes because they like the earthy flavor of the peel. You can peel your potatoes after you boil them, but peeling hot potatoes with your bare hands is difficult and time-consuming unless you submerge them in ice water for a few seconds. If you’d rather peel your potatoes prior to boiling them, use a sharp vegetable peeler or a turning knife (the saber-shaped knife with a curved blade).
