How To Prep Potatoes Up To 3 Days In Advance (Kitchen Hack)

 REAL IS ALWAYS BETTER

If you HATE instant mashed potatoes (gross!) but aren’t fond of the prep work it takes for real mashed potatoes, you’ll love this time-saving peeled potato kitchen hack. I absolutely HATE instant mashed potatoes. I always volunteer to bring the “real deal” to any gathering, so that no one has to eat the instant crap from a box. Not everyone likes peeling, but I actually love to peeling vegetable! It’s a calming stress-reliever for me. 

But here’s the catch…

As much as I love peeling veggies, peeling 5-10 pounds of potatoes is time consuming! Not only do you have to peel them, but also cube, boil & then mash them… you get the idea. It’s a lot of work, all at once, just to enjoy homemade mashed potatoes. What if I told you that you can peel potatoes up to 3 days in advance, using a kitchen hack I learned from my grandmother?
