Easy Potato Peeling

I just received this tip from a friend who sent me the youtube website. It is a real time-saver for peeling potatoes, especially for potato salad.

Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Wash potatoes and score around the center with a sharp knife. Drop the potatoes into the boiling water and let cook for about 15 minutes. Remove potatoes from boiling water and put them into a bowl of ice water, one at a time, for about 10 seconds. Remove from cold water and pull the skins off from both ends.

The link doesn't go to the video, says it's a malformed video ID, but I searched and found it anyhow. What a great tip, I will have to try it when I want to make potato salad.

Editor's Note: Oops, I fixed the link. Thanks for letting us know.
