    Raw or somehow prepared? Roasted, it's really good, plain or rubbed in barbeque oil. Raw, eh, it's passable.

    My mind went to the wrong place when I first read that question...
    I see myself either in jail or working at Olive Garden.
    Either way, endless salads getting tossed.

    I like to ask the potatoes if they're "about a size 14" before I peel them. Some people get it and laugh, the rest just think I'm odd.

    Cooked 'tater skins are AWESOME!

    My one friend actually passed me all her peels when making Mashed Potatoes - she was going to throw them out and I said "are you KIDDING!?".

    I took the skins, lightly oiled them up with EVOO (extra virgin Olive Oil), threw some steak seasoning on them and lightly baked them in the oven. A sprinkle of shredded cheddar and a side of Sour Cream w/chives later - they agreed later that the skins were a better dish than the Mashed Potatoes. :P

    I'm not a fan of the skin when it's in mashed potatoes, but for baked potatoes, or home made chips/fries? Yeah, sure.

    Baked potato in the oven with olive oil, salt and pepper rubbed on it is delicious, you can eat the whole thing.

    Yeah, I always eat the skin when I have a baked potato, and when I eat fries, the ones with some skin still on them are usually the best.

    Or a yawing hole in a battered head
    And the scuppers clogged with rotting red
    And there they lay I damn me eyes

    Mmm...potato skins (home-made of course, not some terrible chips from a store) are awesome. Funny thing is that is the only way I eat potatoes, I can't stand the texture of a potato otherwise (anything that has the texture of sand I cannot eat).
