Forget the knife or potato peeler. The fastest way to peel a potato is with water and your hands.
No way, right?
Hey, we’ve been doing it wrong all this time too. Check out this video for a unique method that will reduce your potato peeling time from minutes to just seconds.
The secret is a bowl of ice-water.
Simply boil your potatoes as you normally do before peeling them – about 20 minutes. But immediately on removing them from the heat, dump them in a bowl of icy water for a mere 5-10 seconds. This causes the skin to detach from the spud and with a simple twist of the hands, the entire peel falls off effortlessly.
Add butter and enjoy with a steak.
