Cooking New Potatoes

How to remove the center of the potato skin? I have new potatoes. Do I peel or boil first when I want a band of red skin at top and another one at the bottom?

First of all you should rinse your new red potatoes and carefully use a vegetable brush, if you have one, under the water at the kitchen sink to get rid of any soil that might be inside any cavity on the surface of the potato.
