    Put a big pot of water on to boil. Take whole potatoes and score a line around their middle. Put them in the boiling water whole and when they are done, put them in ice water for 10 seconds or so. Then take tatoes out of cold water and pull the skins off.

    Voila! Now go mash some spuds or make a soup, potatoe salad, whatever you want.

    What a wonderful idea! It's been a long time since I've been able to peel a potato so this is a very welcome tip.

    It would be good if you could also post this tip on the thread that's titled "Tips for Managing Daily Life". You can find it on FMS board, near the top.

    God bless,
