What is the function of potato water?
By sudha saraf
I always use the potato water for gravy when cooking roast etc. If there is too much, freeze and save until there is enough for making soup.

Potato water is also great for making potato bread at home; a lot of recipes for it call for either it or plain water if none's available. Using the reserved potato water makes a big difference in both taste and texture of "hands on" or bread machine recipes.
If there's a lag between when you have potato water and when you plan to bake, just freeze portions of it until you're ready.

Also, you can use your leftover coffee grounds, egg shells, paper egg cartons, etc.
