FRENCH fries, mashed, salad, skins— there are so many delicious ways to enjoy potatoes.
To ensure your potato-based recipes turn out tasty, however, you need to prepare the starchy vegetable correctly.
A chef on TikTok, who goes by @AbbyInTheGalley, offered advice for how to peel your potatoes. Abby said the right way will remove any ugly brown spots and bruises.
The chef began by using a peeler to shave off the skin, flipping the potato to get a good slicing angle.
Next, the pro revealed the hack: “Do you know what that little beak is used for at the end of your potato peeler?”
Abby pointed at the indentation at the tip of the tool.
“It’s to get out all of those little nasty bits,” the chef said, while using the groove to scoop out the small dark spots dispersed across the vegetable’s body.
“Dig into the potato and core it out.”

As a final tip, Abby said: “Also keep your potatoes in water to prevent them from browning.”
The chef submerged the already-peeled potatoes in a bowl of water.
Viewers loved the hack:
“Why does this feel like you are becoming my mom and teaching me how to cook again,” one joked.
“You’re saving lives one tip at a time,” said another.
Abby has become well-known for her kitchen tips like this one.
The chef recently shared a video that revealed how to properly dice a tomato.
The kind of knife you use will make all the difference.
“You’re either going to need a really sharp chef’s knife, like my awesome Kuma knife, or a serrated knife,” Abby said.
“The whole goal is to not smush the tomato.”
Step one is to core the tomato: “So to core the tomato, I’m just going to grip upon my knife and make a circular cut around the core.”
While gripping the top of the knife, Abby made a relatively shallow incision around the top stem of the tomato and pulled it out.
The chef then cut the tomato in half lengthwise.
“Here’s the first way to dice a tomato: cut the tomato into even sheets,” Abby said, while slicing down the middle of one of the tomato halves (lengthwise again).
“Then slice it one way, and then slice it the opposite way, and it should come out into small, diced pieces.”
