Cooking Tips : How to Peel Tomatoes

Uploaded by cookingguide on 27.10.2008

To remove the skin off your tomato, go to and have a pot of boiling water ready to go.
Next, take your tomato and on the underside of the tomato you want to cut a little cross
with a little paring knife on the bottom of the tomato. This is going to make the peeling
of the tomato much easier. Now I'm going to drop the tomato into the boiling water for
about ten seconds. From there, I'm going to remove it and go ahead and remove the peel.
Or, you can remove it and place it into a water bath, either way. Once you remove the tomato from the water,
you can either put it into an ice bath or go ahead and peel it. All you have to do is
take one of the corners and easily peel it back. And it should, the peel should come
off very easily.
And that is how you peel a tomato.
