That’s a pretty cool way to peel a potato. But in the amount of time it took to boil it and what not, I would have been eating it. LOL

I never did this to a potato before, like kolwdwrkr said, for the 15 minutes plus you could have easily peeled them and had them on the way to finished.

BUT, this techniques does work well is for slipping the skins off of peaches for canning. I don’t like skins on my peaches (hot water packed or frozen) and peaches are way too delicate to peel without scarring them up bad.

For peaches only leave them in boiling water for maybe 15 SECONDS or so. Just long enough to kinda cook through the skin. Then get the whole batch out of the boiling water, so they don’t cook, and plunk them all into a big bowl of ice water. Then slip the skins and you have perfect peaches ready to take the stone out and preserve as desired.

I have been trying to get my wife to give that a try for some time.
I just showed her the video and “Sczaham” I think she’s got it!

Should work for carrots as well.
