Save time peeling potatoes this holiday season! Easily peel boiled potatoes by dunking them in ice water after they’re cooked. The temperature change will shock the skins loose and make peeling a breeze. Watch the video and read the steps below to learn more!
Step # 1: Boil potatoes until they are tender (you can check by poking the potatoes with a fork or knife).
Step # 2: Drop the potatoes in ice water for 5 – 10 seconds. The temperature change will shock the skins loose and make peeling a breeze. It is important to only place the potatoes in the ice water for 5 – 10 seconds.
Step # 3: Peel the potatoes by hand! If the skin heats back up from the core heat of the potato, you can quickly dunk back into the ice water!
