I actually really like latkes with unpeeled potatoes. Part of my reason for not peeling is sheer sloth, but I appreciate the bit of extra flavor the skin adds, and supposedly it's nutritious as well, which is nice to think about as you eat lovely, fried potato latkes.
You use the term "sloth" like it's a bad thing!
Unpeeled potatoes = Good!
Depends on the type of potato and the freshness. Red potatoes with peels good, Yukon Gold good. Russet not so good. The skin is thicker, as it is a baker, and has a tendency to bitterness. Thinner skinned potatoes are wonderful with the peels, as long as the 'eyes' are taken out and there is no green under the skin.
