There was a thread with the same you tube video about 4 to 6 weeks ago. But still interesting way of doing it.

that is interesting but after they are cooled in the ice are they still hot enough to make mashed potatoes?

I think the idea is to cook them long enough (I thnke she said 15 minutes) to loosen the skin. So you cook them, take 'em out after 15 minutes, cool them a little so they can be handled, peel them and then put them back in to finish cooking. Does that help?

That's how I peel peaches and tomatoes... of course, the boiling time is much shorter.

Nice, but why would I wait 15 minutes to peel them, I wouldn't gain time this way, on the contrary.
