Secrets of Success




leave the peels on your potatos when you mash them. they are full of valuable vitamins and minerals and a wonderful source of potassium. they give texture to the mashed spuds, too!! I have never had anyone complain about this!!

  • I've been doing this for years, I also use red potatoes they say they are better for you. They definitely taste really good that way. And it definitely gives them more texture. emoticon - by TONISSS48
  • I am going to start doing this...I LOVE potatoes, but haven't thought about the peelings giving me that extra that is so good for me.

    Thanks for the tip! - by JJSSPARK
