Apra-you-know-whatting-lutely. Lots of nutrition in that potato skin. If I'm doing a meal that really demands super smooth mashed, then I'll peel the spuds, but most of the time, even mashed keeps the skin.

Yes. The skin is full of terroir. Potato sommeliers can tell what county it came from just by smelling the skin...often the farm as well.

I always ask for a sommelier to explain the potato choices at any decent restaurant.

Those potato experts are now known as pommeliers - there are three highly regarded schools for this growing profession. One in Idaho, one in Peru and one in Ireland.

Other parts of the world ruin perfectly good potatoes making something called “vodka”.

I am alive because my grandfather's prison guards did not eat their potato skins. And also a lot of luck. 😳

Mrs. Riadie likes to do bakers in the air fryer, 25 mins. per side with a light coat of olive oil & kosher salt. It makes the skins perfect for eating.

White baked, oh yeah!!!

Sweet baked, not so much. But I do love baked sweet potatoes.
