Peeling Tomatoes the Easy Way

There are two easy methods for peeling the skin off tomatoes.

You want to remove the skin if you are making relishes and preserves and also if you are freezing tomatoes for later use.

Here's how I do it (I prefer Method #2)

Method #1:

Cut a cross in each tomato
Make a cross cut in the base of each tomato. Put them in a heat proof bowl and pour boiling water over. The skin will crack and loosen and you can easily remove it.

Method #2
Tomatoes in boiling water
Put a pot of water on to boil. As soon as it boils, carefully drop uncut tomatoes into the water. When you see the skin start to crack, remove tomatoes with slotted spoon and immediately place in a bowl of ice water. When cool enough to handle, you can easily peel the skin off.
