You've been peeling potatoes wrong all this time

Yes, we know - another day, another thing you've been doing wrong according to the internet. But this is genuinely useful. Here's a much, much easier way to peel potatoes.

1. Use a sharp knife and run the blade around the potato - not too deep. Do this with all the potatoes you want to boil

2. Put them in a pan and cook

3. Drain them and then run cold water over them - you should be able to see the cut mark

4. Use your fingers and gently pull the skin off

5. Decide what you're going to do with your free time. We recommend watching Parks and Recreation.
