    potatoes THIS IS INCREDIBLE! (SOUND)

    Peeling boiled potatoes THIS IS INCREDIBLE! (Sound)

    This is really great, I am going to try it the next time I want mashed potatoes or potato salad!
    If you take the time to watch this, you will not only be glad you did, but you will forward this to all your daughters, sisters, moms, etc...
    I haven't tried it yet, but I will! Just when you thought you knew everything about boiling potatoes ...

    To all who love making potato salad but hate peeling the boiled potatoes, here is the solution for easy peeling. This will BLOW your mind. Well, we do learn something new every day.

    I wish I had known about this thirty years ago. Peeling the cooked potato was the least desirable part in making a potato salad. Enjoy.

    Hmmmm. never tried that. That is what we used to do with our tomatoes before canning though, drop them in boiling water for a few seconds, put them in ice water, prick with a knife and watch the skin just roll away.

    OMIF STARS! This is the awesomest and greatest tip. I wish I had this a long time ago having to make massive amounts of potato salad for picnics, BBQ's and church events. I have sent it to everyone I know!

    Explosive blessings, abundance and inspiration to you all!

    Me, too! The skins are yummy, even mashed and I'm not going to fool around with bowl of ice just for home. Sure might use it when doing a bunch of them though.

    Looks easy enough, but I seldom peel potatoes. I just scrub them well and cook with skins on. No-one ever complains about them and they're more nutricious with the skins.

    I have seen this video lots of times and always say I'm going to try it, but always forget. Am anxious to hear of someone's results. I usually cook the skins as I LOVE them, but do remove them for salad, scalloped potatoes, etc.

    I have always heard that you are suppose to place potatoes in cold water so that they get done throughout, rather from the outside in.....Large potato....15 minutes....is it done in the middle. I hope so... I will try this...looks great. Thank you for the tip.
