Wash Your Potatoes in the DishwasherBy
The look on my boys’ faces were priceless.
I mean, when I give out orders like, “Fold and put away the laundry” or “Go clean the bathrooms” I usually just get a routine shrug, nod, and a big high five. (Just kidding. My kids don’t like cleaning the bathrooms enough to warrant a high five.) But when I asked my boys to fill the dishwasher with potatoes, they thought maybe I’d finally lost my mind.
Apparently they hadn’t read the same tip I had that stated that if you need to scrub a large amount of potatoes, you could let your dishwasher do the work for you. Mom, crazy? Naw, just efficient.
(Okay, yeah, and a little crazy too.)
Recently, after ordering 50 pounds of potatoes from our food co-op, I had my boys put about a third of them into the dishwasher. I ran the load, without soap, and had tons of potatoes ready to bake and make into Homemade Hashbrowns.
I just wanted to share that tip in case you’re feeding a bunch of people for the holidays, in case you want to make Homemade Hashbrowns…
Or in case you wanted to make your kids giggle when you ask them to do a chore. ;)
Side Note: I typically bake a full roasting pan full of potatoes (with lid on) for about an hour and a half at 350°. Easiest way I’ve found to bake potatoes!
Ever washed potatoes in the dishwasher?
