What is the function of potato water?

There are several awesome tips listed in the ThriftyFun archives below :-)
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.
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.
I also like to drink hot potato water especially if I'm having digestive issues. My fave seasoning is celery salt and black pepper. A sprinkle of powdered bouillon is a nice touch too, even a little milk and a dab of butter! I only do this with peeled potatoes. I don't want to consume the fertilizers and pesticides on the skin.
Thrifty Fun has been around so long that many of our pages have been reset several times. Archives are older versions of the page and the comments that were provided then.

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