Whenever I'm just eating fresh vegetables like the barebreast contess, I like to experience the earth's gift unaltered. So it's only unpeeled, uncooked, and uncut potatoes and carrots for me. And I try not to chew, because chewing isn't organic. If god intended my food to be easier to swallow, then he would have made it all mush in the first place. Tired of people straying from god's plan.
It depends on so many factors - How are they being cooked? How big are they? How much time do I have? What kind of state are they in? Are they going to be ‘in’ something? What time of year is it? Can I be bothered peeling?
For instance, anyone caught peeling a Chantenay carrot, or a Jersey Royal potato should face immediate incarceration. The same fate should befall anyone peeling a potato that’s about to be baked in the oven. But then, who wants ugly, gnarly skin on boiled carrots? To peel or not to peel: it’s a veritable minefield!
