Should I Rinse Potatoes Before Boiling?

Rinsing potatoes helps remove excess starch, so it is recommended to rinse the potatoes before cooking.  To ensure even more starch is out of the way, it’s recommended that they even be quickly rinsed after boiling.  For this step, we recommend using hot water whereas prior to cooking you will use cold water.
