Potato Peel Snacks

Don't throw those potato peels away. Instead, rinse and pat dry. Cut any spoiled parts off and discard. Place the peels on a greased cookie sheet and drizzle oil over all. Sprinkle with seasonings and bake at 350 degrees F til crispy. This is a tasty, fast snack.

Potato Peel Snacks

What a great idea! Sounds good! Years ago I stopped peeling potatoes for mashed; just scrubbed them well and mashed along with the peels. Everyone asked about it and I said that's where most of the nutrients are! So most of my family and friends started just mashing them with the peels on as well. (10/07/2010)

Please make sure that the peels have no green in them or small eye spots, as these can contain Solanine, which can cause serious illness. Symptoms generally occur after 8-12 hours after ingestion and can include gastrointestinal disturbances and neurological disorders.

Mild symptoms can include headaches, dizziness, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Other symptoms can include: fever, restlessness, drowsiness and mental confusion, trembling and hallucination, sleep disorders, loss of libido, clumsiness, depression, anxiety, coma, delirium, and a variety of pains in ribs and pelvis, coldness, anxiety, lack of sense of warmth and empathy for other humans, and visual effects.


The effects of solanine are broad and very hard to categorize simply here - and they can last years, but because the symptoms are common to a whole host of other ailments, mistaken diagnoses can occur, and not all symptoms may be present in any individual case of solanine poisoning. The range of symptoms experienced can be more varied and extensive after regular exposure to less than toxic
levels than through direct poisoning with toxic levels.

I mention this because myself and a cousin are both highly sensitive to this, and both have had to go to the ER because of it. (10/07/2010)
