How to Peel & Seed a Tomato September 3, 2012

Posted by Paula Erbay in Other.

Score the bottom of each tomato with a sharp thin bladed knife.

Place in a large bowl and pour boiling water over the tomatoes.  Let sit for about 1 minute, the peel should start to separate where the tomato has been scored.

Carefully pour out the hot water and run cold water over the tomatoes to stop them from cooking.  Keep the tomatoes in the cold water and carefully peel the thin skin from each starting where it has been scored. You may need to run a thin bladed knife just under the skin to help loosen – but with this method you should be able to easily remove the peel with your fingers.




To seed them: cut in half crosswise; cut or scoop out the exposed seeds.
