Use an Apple Slicer to Cut Potatoes Even Faster

We may or may not need to be bringing in a boatload of mashed potatoes to the Preschool Thanksgiving Pitch In tomorrow morning… so tonight meant peeling and chopping up lots and lots and lots of taters…

So what did Puddie do?

I wouldn’t recommend you go out and buy an apple slicer for this purpose alone, but if you already own one, we’ve got to admit: it’s pretty handy.   Apples, potatoes, onions, pears, and I think once on a big mozzarella ball.

I personally don’t peel potatoes.  There’s nutritional value in the skin, and I often mash it anyway to the point I can’t tell.  But it’s really important to wash the potato before preparation if you are keeping the skin.  They’ve been exposed to various chemicals and such en route to the grocery store, and while sitting on display.
