Playing With My Food ~
A journal about food, thought, travel, and life; by Chef & Raconteur Chaz French.

Dawn Wells (yes, of Gilligan’s Island) taught me something I didn’t learn in culinary school

I will never ever peel a potato again!

 

Seriously watch this video, it will rock your culinary skills.

    LOL This is how I was taught to peel potatoes.

      I skipped the ice water part myself, I don’t have time for that, I just gave them a good rinse with cold water.

    I never thought of scoring it, but this is how we were raised to peel potatoes. I remember the first time my husband bought a potato peeler, I was like, “What’s that for?!” Also, the ice is probably better than my way of holding the potato under running water and sliding the skin off. I sometimes get water-logged potatoes.
