Peeling potatoes IS NOT a punishment

I’m sure we’re all familiar with that old image of military men and a gigantic pile of potatoes that need peeling.

Things are never that dreary in my kitchen and my son gets excited about peeling potatoes when I pull out the apple peeler.  I am in charge of jamming the potato onto the spokes and taking it off so he does not cut his hand on the blade.  However, the job of cranking the handle and managing the long snake like peels is all his and he loves it.
This works great for homemade mashed potatoes and is also a huge hit with apples in the Fall for pie.  He loves to be in the kitchen with me.  I’d make him an apron if I didn’t think my husband would object to him wearing one.

I definitely recommend investing in a peeler/corer/slicer.  This is one gadget in my kitchen that does not collect dust.
