IF YOU SPENT your evening peeling spuds for the dinner, you’re probably exhausted.

Trying to free the delicious innards from the skin a tough job that has taken countless hours from Irish people*.

Now, Dave Hax is here to fix that for you.

It’s not a massive leap, in fairness.

Cut around the middle of the skin


Boil the spuds


Add cold water


And peel


Thank you, Dave Hax. You’re our hero.


*Ok, it’s a minor inconvenience. But it’s still a pain.
