This is pretty trivial in the scheme of things but I have real difficulty peeling potatoes. I made a potato based soup the other night and it took nearly a 1/2 hour to peel six potatoes. I was really tired at the end of that and it was only a small part of the recipe. I use a conventional carrot/potato peeler. Anyone out there find an easier way to peel them?

Hi John, Your post made me think of Stompin' Tom Connors and Bud the Spud. How about getting one of the Starfrit automatic peelers?

I have some difficulty with peeling spuds, too. And I eat a lot of mashed taters cause they go down easy. Thanks for the helpful hints

Thank you Laurel and Lori,

I will try the boiling/ice water technique and it that doesn't work out I'll go for the Starfrit peeler. I read reviews for it on Amazon and people either love it or hate it - no middle ground.

or you could scrub them well and only peel the yucky parts. Scrubbing is not too easy either, for me, but maybe easier than peeling?
Bon appetit!
