'Tis true. The skins are loaded with nutrients. The healthiest objects in your home are the sink and the trash. We loved to toss all those good juices down the drain, and what doesn't go there, hits the trash bag.

I just think you got some defective potatoes. I would return them to the manufacturer for a replacement or refund.

Sir Loin--I'm not much of a returner of goods.
I was watching some food show the other day --the Diner's and Drives show--the chef/cook said they only bought potatoes aged/dried/cured for 4 months to make perfect fries. That makes me think that potatoes need to be dried a while before using. (like garlic, like popcorn--and maybe other vegetables)
