Tired of Peeling Potatoes? This Ingenious Trick Is a Total Time-Saver

Whether they’re mashed or fried, potatoes are a staple of most peoples’ holiday menus. There’s just one drawback — peeling them. This year, you can streamline your potato preparation with a trick that’s circulating on social media. The good news is that you don’t need a potato peeler at all. Just start by boiling your unpeeled potatoes as you normally would. Once they’re fully cooked, transfer them to a bowl of ice water and allow them to hang out in the ice bath for 5-10 seconds. When they’re cool enough to hold, remove them. Now simply twist the potato using your hands in opposite directions and the skin will come sliding off.
