How to Peel a Tomato

When I make tomato sauce, I usually remove the skin of a tomato. Here is a simple technique to do it.

  • Cut a shallow sit in the shape of a cross (+) on each tomato
  • Place it in a bowl. Pour boiling water on the tomatoes. Make sure it covers the tomatoes fully
  • Keep another bowl with ice cold water ready
  • After 1-2 minutes, plunge the tomatoes in the ice water
  • Peel the skin off with your fingers
  • Use in your favorite recipe
