How to peel Potatoes correctly

Potatoes are a common ingredient in every household especially in Western countries. They especially love it fried, baked and boiled. Potatoes are easy to cook but peeling it correctly can be very tricky. If you don't mind losing some potato flesh while peeling, you should stop reading now. However, if you would like to know how to peel the potatoes correctly, continue reading.

Before I move on further, I would like to put a disclaimer. I do not claim to be an expert in peeling potatoes, but just a person who had done this so many times that I now know the trick to get the most out of your potatoes. First and foremost, is to pick and choose the correct potatoes. If your potatoes has a lot of "eyes", it involves an extra step. Start by washing the potatoes in cold water and gently scrub away the dirt around the potato. This will ensure that the dirt does not rest on the potato flesh when you are peeling them. Then remove the eyes by cutting a V-shape beside it to remove them with a small knife. Then use a slicer to gently peel off the potato skins. After that, immediately place the potatoes in cold water and only remove them when you are ready to cook it.
