How to quickly peel a raw potato

We are used to the fact that potatoes are “second bread” for us, so housewives often use them to make soups, borscht, casseroles, delicious side dishes, potato pancakes, pies, dumplings. We boil it, fry it, stew it, bake it. And almost every time we have to peel potatoes. This process is not for everyone.

But if you approach the process of peeling potatoes correctly, then it will not cause you any particular difficulties. Often, young housewives have a question: “Do I need to wash potatoes before peeling?” There is no correct answer to this question, and some housewives wash potatoes before peeling, while others do not. Therefore, choose the option that you like the most.

It is also very important for quick and high-quality cleaning to choose the right tools. The best option is a special peeler. In extreme cases, use a sharp short vegetable knife. The blade of such a knife is approximately equal in length or even shorter than the handle. It is also very important to keep peeled potatoes in water. So it does not darken and remains elastic.
