Try This Potato Peeling Hack To Save Time and Energy

Peeling raw potatoes is a hassle and a time consuming chore that nobody enjoys doing. It's difficult, and it actually wastes a lot of the good bits of potatoes which are scraped off together with the skin. If your recipe calls for skinless boiled potatoes, here's a kitchen hack you can try that will remove the skins:

This technique is great if you need to make mashed potatoes or potato salad. You might want to wait a few minutes for the potatoes to cool slightly before pulling the skin off, or risk burning your fingers. Alternatively, you can pour out the boiling water and fill the pan with room temperature water for a few minutes. Once the potatoes are cool enough to handle, take them out of the water and remove the skins.
