Boiling Potatoes in their Jackets
I love to cook potatoes without peeling them. They taste a lot better cooked with their jackets on and I find it protects the potato and makes it less likely that they will be overcooked and waterlogged.
However, it can be a bit of a nightmare to remove the skins from hot potatoes once they are cooked. The easiest way to do this is to remove a band of skin around the middle of the potato, around 1cm wide and then boil. Once the potatoes are cooked the skins will slip right off.
