Is it safe to eat the potato skin ?

The skin of the potato contains the majority of the potato's fiber, and many of the nutrients (especially vitamin C) are located close to the skin. Wash the potato thoroughly, cut away green discoloration and/or sprouts (these may be toxic !) and enjoy your potato with the skin on.
