How to use a potato peeler in a different way.
I tried this during the lock down.
Almost no more holding the potato in one hand and peeling towards it with a sharp knife or sharp potato peeler.
Here is what you need:
- A chopping board
- A potato peeler
- A knife (to cut the potato in half)
- A potato (of course!)
First cut the potato in half.
Next – see picture below
Place the half potato on the board. and rest the potato peeler on the table (as shown below) with the blade of the peeler resting on the board and on the side of the potato. Rotate the potato clockwise with the left hand against the potato peeler blade. The potato will peel easily and quickly
Last – see picture below
Repeat with the peeler resting on the board. The peeling will continue one layer up.
You are done except for a little trimming at top and bottom.
