    potato skin

    If you're doing fries or mashed potatoes, etc. with the skin, do you worry about blotches and other not-so-uniform-looking parts?

    I cut out any rotten spots, voids or breaks before I make fries or mash. You'll usually find them when you cut the fries, or make mash, as you will be able to see the insides when you cut them. However baby potatoes or fingerlings are more difficult to spot as you will be simmering them whole.

    I cut out eyes and/or eyelets, because they are inedibly woody. Other than that, I just stay far, far away from green potatoes. Solanine poisoning is a real thing.

    Funny looking potatoes, nah. I'll eat em up!

    I cut out the bad parts. I try to stay away from green potatoes... though I have eaten my fair share of them with no Ill effect.

    I'm with Julia Child on this. Skins have no place in mashed potatoes or fries. Or potato salad. On the other hand, potato skins with sour cream and bacon are among my favorite things.

    What a shame... Clearly, neither you nor Julia have had it done right.

    No places in fries? Did Julia really say that?

    Well skins may have no place in Julia's "French" fries, but that's why I eat "FREEDOM" fries.

    All bad jokes aside, I keep/ remove the skins based on the type/condition of the skins, the dish, and the dish's context in the meal.
