Chances are, you automatically grab your trusty tool from the kitchen drawer when it's time to peel potatoes. However, in a video uploaded to YouTube on Oct. 25, Davy Devaux showcases how to remove potato skin by simply boiling the vegetable until the skin easily slips off. Devaux suggests that this not only preserves more of the potato, but also maintains its flavor by cooking it inside the skin first.
According to Devaux's website
, he is a self-taught sushi chef based in Marbella, Spain. Devaux explains that his website "was borne from two primary hobbies – cooking sushi, and website building," and has since gone on to launch two YouTube. How To Make Sushi
features Devaux's incredibly creative sushi-making recipes, and Foody Tube
is his second space to host additional cooking footage like this potato-peeling trick.
Devaux's mastery of food is abundantly clear through colorful creations like his carrot rose
and red onion garnish
. However, his most popular online video is indeed this potato-peeling trick (it has over 3 million YouTube views). And regardless of whether you choose to peel your potatoes or eat them with the skins, who doesn't love a simple shortcut to make life in the kitchen a little bit easier?
