    Talking Potatoe Peel Snacks

    I got tired of throwing away potatoe peels so my BF's sister told me what she does with hers. Instead, clean and rinse throughly and pat dry. Cut any spoiled parts off and discard. Put the peels on a greased cookie sheet and drizzle oil over all. Sprinkle with seasonings (to your taste) and bake at 350 degrees F til crispy. This is a tasty, fast snack - i really liked them!!

    I even dip them in Ranch dressing!!! Yummy!

    (Please make sure that the peels have no GREEN in them or SMALL EYE SPOTS, as these can make you sick)

    Oh, these sound delicious and reminded me of something I saw ds do a few weeks ago while we were out to eat. He ordered extra pickle slices and then proceeded to squeeze the daylights out of them over his fries. At first I thought, ewwww and then I tasted them, they were really good! I'll bet fresh pickle juice on these would be tasty too!

    Potatoe Slices sound delicious! Will definitely keep this in mind next time I peel potatoes. And pickle juice? Interesting idea.

    Please make sure that the peels have no green in them or small eye spots, as these can contain Solanine, which can cause serious illness. Symptoms generally occur after 8-12 hours after ingestion and can include gastrointestinal disturbances and neurological disorders.

    Mild symptoms can include headaches, dizziness, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Other symptoms can include: fever, restlessness, drowsiness and mental confusion, trembling and hallucination, sleep disorders, loss of libido, clumsiness, depression, anxiety, coma, delirium, and a variety of pains in ribs and pelvis, coldness, anxiety, lack of sense of warmth and empathy for other humans, and visual effects.

    The effects of solanine are broad and very hard to categorize simply here - and they can last years, but because the symptoms are common to a whole host of other ailments, mistaken diagnoses can occur, and not all symptoms may be present in any individual case of solanine poisoning. The range of symptoms experienced can be more varied and extensive after regular exposure to less than toxic
    levels than through direct poisoning with toxic levels.

    I mention this because myself and a cousin are both highly sensitive to this, and both have had to go to the ER because of it.

    The pickle juice is similar to the British practice of putting Malt Vinegar on fries instead of Ketchup. A distinctly different taste.
    I used to eat a lot of natural foods until I learned that most people die of natural causes.
