I play a game with myself when it comes to peeling potatoes. I lean over the sink, and with the water running, and my trusty serrated peeler, I peel each potatoes right over the disposal in one continuous strip. Job done in no time. But them I live alone and peel only one potato for each meal.

Oh and one more thing. Bliss and pmeheran, thanks for my laugh for the day.

Someone asked upthread about using an apple peeler on potatoes--yep, works well. Unscrew the corer/slicer bit from the end of the peeler, unless you want thin slices for something. You will have to peel a few stray bits that the peeler misses.

It works best on round potatoes.

I've heard that they are better for you unpeeled also. I don't know if this is fact or fiction. I do know I like the taste better with the peels in the dishes.
