    Hand scrub before baking . . . and when we do a New England dinner, pot roast, etc. we always leave the peelings on the carrots and potatoes . . . less work, more flavorful.

    Haven't heard of those things doing any real good for creosote, but the saved eggshells are good to plant under tomatoes to help prevent BER (blossom end rot).

    They say that eating potato skins is healthy and helps keep your arteries clean, perhaps it works the same way for your chimneys :p
    Problem is, if I put all my potato skins in the wood stove I'll have to start using my chimney brush on my arteries, and that doesn't sound like fun to me. <>
