Potato Peeling Trick From Dawn Wells of Gilligan’s Island (Weekend Video Spotlight)

Weekend Video SpotlightEver needed to peel a lot of potatoes in a hurry and you couldn’t find (or didn’t feel like using) your potato peeler?

In the short video below, Dawn Wells, the former star of the classic TV series Gilligan’s Island (she played Mary Ann) will show you how to quickly remove the skin from a lot of potatoes using a pot of boiling water and a bowl of ice water.

Using a potato peeler to peel the skin from a large batch of potatoes can be a bit tedious, so this method is a nice change when making such dishes as homemade mashed potatoes or potato salad.

You can see Dawn Wells’ potato peeling trick below. Enjoy!

Fun Fact: Potatoes are also a big favorite with Russell Johnson, the actor who played The Professor on Gilligan’s Island. You can see The Professor’s favorite potato salad recipe here.
