Peel A Potato In 10 Seconds

I am on a learning kick right now! Last week I finally tested the ‘peel garlic in 10 seconds‘ method and now I know how to peel a potato in about as much time? Life’s awesome. I peel potatoes very rarely since I feel that the skin makes most dishes taste better and the skin…
