I do not peel Yukon gold or sweet potatoes if I cut them up into chunks and roast them. Id I make mashed potatoes with red ones I leave the skin on. Russet's I peel if making potato salad or mashed potatoes. I never peel baked potatoes. I love when the skin gets crispy.

Potatoes are easier to prepare and healthier for you when cooked with their skins on. Always rinse and scrub the potatoes thoroughly before using.

Peel them for mashed potatoes, but not for baking. I love them both ways.

Depends. If it's a pale, thin-skinned potato, I just scrub them. If it's a heavy brown peel, I peel.
With some recipes, they absolutely must be peeled, like when I make French aligot. It's supposed to be cheesy, very smooth and glue-y.
Peels in it wouldn't work at all.


So good! So decadent!
