How To Peel A Potato –> The Fast Way

Peeling a potato with a peeler also wastes a lot of food. By the time most people are done peeling, they have a tiny little cube of potato and a sink full of skin and wasted shavings.

The MakeSushi method also includes a couple of extra bonuses: nutrition and flavor. Most of the flavor and vitamins from potatoes are actually in the skin. Cooking them with the skin will add both to your meal.

Oh, if you like carrots, then you might want to take your peeler out of the trash. You’ll probably still need it… just not for your potatoes.
