How to peel potatoes quickly and easily

Watch more with these video collections:

How do you peel a potato quickly, easily, and without the messy process of peeling them with a vegetable peeler? Dave Hax demonstrates a simple alternative that only requires a clean slice and boiling, or as he suggests, “you could try parboiling them and then putting them in the oven if you want roast potatoes, or cutting them for chips.”

There’s more Dave Hax in the archives: how to make heart-shaped eggs, how to make Halloween pumpkins with scary teeth, and how to make smoke rings with a simple DIY vortex cannon.

Also: How to make “magic mud” from potatoes and some tonic water.
