I already knew about this method for peaches and tomatoes.  I only peel potatoes for potato salad.  Not sure why even then, but this will make my job easier.  After peeling, I then dice them up to what I want, and then finish cooking them to al dente.  I like my veggies to crunch when i bite them.

I never peel.  Too much flavor loss.

Sooo....112*F to 45*F. I can just put my potato in the sauna and then toss it out on the porch to peel it?

 :)  Seems like water baths do a better job than dry heat.
