To Peel a Potato?

How to Peel Potatoes

Here are some basic tips on how to peel potatoes

  • Soaking potatoes in cold water for a few minutes before peeling them make them easier to peel.
  • Choose a potato peeler that is right for your task. A swivel blade potato peeler that allows you to remove the peel on both the up and down stroke is usually the best choice. For large amounts of potatoes consider an Electric Potato Peeler
  • If using a hand-help potato peeler, hold the peeler in one hand and the potato in the other hand.
  • Move the peeler in an up and down motion (if using the swivel potato peeler) being careful to go slowly and not cut yourself.
  • Rotate the potato until all sides are peeled, trying not too remove too much of the potato flesh with the potato peels.
  • Rinse the peeled potato to remove any remaining dirt.
