Peeling Tomatoes...Kitchen Tip

Monday, September 8, 2014



All you need to know about peeling tomatoes in this Kitchen Tip post from Walking on Sunshine Recipes.

We had a great tomato harvest this year in our garden.  
One of the things I love to do with tomatoes, besides "eating" them is to preserve them to use at a later date.  The first step in canning tomatoes is to peel them.  Here is an easy
Kitchen Tip on peeling tomatoes that I use every year.

Here is just ONE collection of tomatoes from our garden this year...

Once you get them all washed, put a small "X" in the bottom of each tomato and submerge in boiling water for 30 seconds...


Immediately place the tomatoes into a bowl of ice water...
