Hey, it worked!

I just wash mine well and leave the skins on.

I think that is the beauty of red /new potatoes. the skins are so thin they don't really need peeling.

I didn't watch the video but I'd echo the above posters - who peels new potatoes and why?

edit to add: ok, I watched it, it's a hoot! Those aren't what I'd call new potatoes..

Great idea that works but i cant think of a single dish where i'd need to go to the trouble of washing new potatoes, wonder how the method works on old potatoes.
Actually peeling regular potatoes for family meal isnt that big of a deal.

I'm with the general consensus of leaving the skins on. I love potato skins!

Count me with those who don't peel potatoes. I've never understood the point of it.

I have never peeled a red potato at home (I've "turned" them at times while working as a chef). They're the only potatoes I use for mashed, as well as all their other uses.
