How To: Peel & Seed Fresh Tomatoes

1. Remove the small green stalk from each tomato, if there is one. Cut a cross in the top of each tomato. With a paring knife, remove the hard, green core of the tomatoes.


2. Boil a large pot of water and  fill a large bowl with cold water and ice. When water is boiling, put 2-3 tomatoes in the pan. Leave them in for 20 seconds. The skin will split, starting from the top incision.


3. Remove them with tongs and plunge immediately into cold water. Continue with all tomatoes.


4. Remove tomatoes from cold water and gently peel off the skin.
