The Easiest Way to Peel Potatoes

You’ll need:

  • Potatoes
  • Large pot
  • Large bowl
  • Ice cubes
  • Water
  • Tongs or a slotted spoon

What to do:

Fill your large pot with water and bring it to a boil on your stove top.

Wash  your potatoes, then place them in the boiling water to cook. Allow the potatoes to boil until they’re tender, which should take between 15 and  30 minutes, depending on the side of your potatoes.

While they’re cooking, prepare your ice bath. Fill your large bowl part of the way with ice cubes, then fill the rest of the way with ice cold water. Leave  a few inches between the water level and the rim of the bowl so it  won’t overflow when you add the potatoes.

When the potatoes are tender, remove them from the boiling water and  transfer them immediately to the ice bath. Let them rest in the ice bath  for at least 3 minutes.

Use your tongs or a slotted spoon to remove the potatoes from the ice  bath, then use your thumbs to slide the skins off. It’s really that  easy!
