Almost everyone throws it down the sink, yet it's gold for your garden and home

There are many French people who waste this liquid in their sink every week. While it is a real free elixir.

Potatoes are one of the vegetables that appear most often on our dinner tables in France. And it's no wonder, because potatoes are cheap, tasty, low-calorie and healthy at the same time. The healthfulness of potatoes is particularly notable, as they are a source of many valuable minerals such as potassium, magnesium, calcium, phosphorus and iron. Additionally, potatoes contain almost all vitamins, including a very high content of vitamin C.
