RE: Potatoes in ireland

Well, here in England, you can eat the skin if you like.  It can be the best bit in my opinion, especially if it's nice and crispy....

> A warning about eating potatoes in Ireland.   When I visited there several years ago, I ordered and received a lovely baked potato.   When I started to eat it, the waitress came over, totally shocked, because I was eating the skin!   She told me that one does not eat the skin of a potato in Ireland, any more than one would eat the peel of a banana.
