the only time we peel new potatoes is 1-if we are making potato salad or 2-creamed potatoes and peas or something like that. We sometimes leave the skins on when doing potato salad, depending on what kind I am making.

Peeled potatoes have a flavor very different from unpeeled. I peel them almost all of the time. I definitely intend to try that method on both new and old potatoes. It would be difficult in the winter, however. That's my main mashed potato season.

It looks like something DH, the McGyver guy, would do. Laughed out loud!

Mother says, "All the vitamins are right under the skin." Is that true or just a myth?

Foods that grow under the ground: a lot of the vitamins are found just under the skin.
Foods that grow above the ground: the nutrition is mainly in the core or center, e.g. bananas and oranges.
However, potatoes are part of "dirty dozen". If you want to eat them with skin, maybe it's better to buy the organic kind.
Potatoes are one of the most popular vegetables, but they also rank among the most contaminated with pesticides and fungicides. Twenty-nine pesticides are commonly used, and 79% of potatoes tested exceed safe levels of multiple pesticides.

Not new potatoes. I can't imagine peeling new potatoes.
Just scrub the grelots, boil and serve with lots of butter and parsley. Delicious!

I still think when you are having creamed potatoes and peas the potatoes need to be peeled. otherwise you are correct.
