Okay, now I know I’m late to the game with this item.Seriously.Who never heard of using this nifty little gadget to peel potatoes, carrots, fruits, etc?Me, that’s who.
I grew up with the flimsy metal peelers that were dull, dull, dull.I remember my mom asking me to peel potatoes with it and I usually ended up gouging out half the outer layer trying to make it work.Since then, I’ve only ever used one to peel the skins from carrots. Even then I struggled.Now I buy the already peeled and bagged carrots.Much easier and more convenient.
Well, this past week I spent Thanksgiving with my brother-in-law and sister-in-law in Virginia Beach and she assigned me the task of peeling potatoes. When she handed me this really cool peeler, I looked at her funny. Seriously?I know I’m a huge klutz but I CAN use a knife.
I was amazed at how well these new peelers work.We slicked through those potatoes like they were nothing and I didn’t even feel guilty like I normally do for cutting so much off with the outer peel.
Needless to say, I came right home and bought my own (or two).So this nifty little peeler is my #2 favorite thing for December.Don’t you love the colors?I’ve got an orange and a green one. 🙂
