Is there a safe method for canning white or red potatoes with the skin on?
It is safest to peel potatoes, and other root vegetables, in order to reduce the microorganisms that may be on the produce. Please refer to our Missouri Families webpage http://missourifamilies.org/quick/foodsafetyqa/qafs188.htm for more information.
