RE: Baked Potato - Eat the Skin ??
Yes indeedy, I eat it all. As they once said somewhere in the jazz world, "Skin is IN!"
My mother always told me that the only place the vitamins were in potatoes was in the flesh adjacent to the skin. She would bake potatoes and make me throw away all but the closest part of the innards.
Nowadays, I eat the whole potato -- but not as often, since I'm working on losing weight, and I love my baked spud with both butter AND sour cream.
Here's to the farmers of Idaho, Maine, AND Florida! (After all, there is a non-post-officed town near Hastings, below Palatka, named Spuds. They grow a mess of potatoes in Putnam County, Florida.)
