The Basics - Peeling Tomatoes

Place tomatoes in boiling water for 30 seconds

Peeling Tomatoes

It is so incredibly easy to peel tomatoes and because it's so effortless it's fun.  It is as easy as 1....2....3.....

Step 1:  Place 3 to 5 tomatoes in boiling water for 30 seconds

Step 2:  Remove from boiling water and place these tomatoes in cold water

Step 3:  Peel off the skin - many times the skin will just slide off in one piece.
When canning tomatoes whole you must peel the skin off the tomatoes first.

Remove from hot water and place in cold water.  Then begin peeling.

When canning tomatoes whole - you must always peel off the skin first.  Also, many people simply do not like the tough skin that some tomatoes have - this is an easy way to peel the tomato skins if you are making something "tomatoey" for picky people.  (Yes - I have been known to make up my own words from time to time).
