They’re great tbh. Put the potatoes in, they wizz around and they’re peeled

Back in the 80s my mum had a home version of this that attached to her food mixer (I think), it was basically a large pan lined with what felt like sandpaper. Don’t think she used it more than once as the noise and vibrations were horrific!


fuck 'em, I’d recommend replacing all potato fields (?) with rice paddies before brexit or you’ll be stuck with them forever

You can do this at home with a large metal bucket and a hose!

Lob potatoes in bucket, tilt 45 degrees, fire the water in from the hose to create a vortex, potatoes go round and round and round until ultimately they are all skinned!

potatoes are awfully versatile


“I’d better nip out and get some potatoes”

The fucking indignity of it all, Jesus

Potatoes have the nickname spuds, but what other vegetables have nicknames?

Parsnips → 'nips
Potatoes → Tatty Bogos
Aubergine → Eggplant

All I can think of

That recipe sounds proper bo to me.


okra = lady’s fingers


my dad is incredibly disappointed if my mum makes pasta or rice or anything like that for dinner. a day without potatoes is an absolute tragedy for him.


Irish? Went to a Michelin star restaurant in Ireland (Kilkenny) and everything was served with a massive separate side order of mash.

Not unusual for people to serve up 3 different kinds of potato with a roast dinner, I’ve found as well.
