Tips: How to Quickly Peel Tomatoes to use in Recipes



How to Quickly Peel Tomatoes to use in Recipes from Walking on Sunshine.

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 quickly that I use every year.

Here is just ONE collection of tomatoes from our garden this year.  Yes, I know, it's amazing!

Let's Get Started Peeling Tomatoes


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 in a bowl of ice water.

The outer layer of skin comes off very easily.  I was having fun trying to get it off in one piece.

After the tomatoes have cooked down in the crock pot, you are ready to preserve or can them.
You can also freeze the cooked tomatoes in plastic containers.
