  • Today, I'm gonna show you a really easy way to peel potatoes.

  • If you got a pile of potatoes, using a conventional peeler can be time-consuming and boring.

  • So here's a clever little trick, which makes the whole process quicker, and a bit more fun!

  • Start by taking a sharp knife.

  • And carefully run the blade around the middle of potato like this.

  • Then, put it into a pan, ready to boil.

  • And to run the blade, just through the skin like this, and not too deep into the potato.

  • Do be careful not to cut yourself, and trying get the line to meet up on the other side.

  • Do this with all the potatoes you want to boil!

  • And put them all into the pan.

  • And take the pan, put on the stove.

  • Add some boiling water from your kettle, and leave the potatoes to cook.

  • When they're ready, drain the water into another pan, and keep the potatoes in the first one.

  • Run the pan under some cold water for a few seconds till they're just cool enough to pick up.

  • You should be able to see the cut mark all the way around the potato.

  • Next, use your fingers, and gently pull the skin off.

  • Then, turn it around, and do the same on the other side.

  • Ant that we have a really easy way to peel a potato!

  • Pretty cool, huh?

  • Using this method, you can peel all these potatoes really quickly.

  • Although they've cooled down just enough to pick them up, they're still really hot under the surface.

  • But if you like, you can take them back into the hot water we saved earlier to heat them up again.
