How to Peel Tomatoes

boiled tomatoes
This is a necessary step in preparing tomatoes for canning or other type of processing.

  1. First, remove the cores on the tomatoes (doing it now is much easier than after removing the peel)

  2. Fill your sink with cold water

  3. In a large pot, bring water to a boil

  4. Once the water is boiling, place tomatoes in the pot and set your timer for 30 seconds

  5. When the timer goes off, remove the tomatoes from the boiling water and place in the sink filled with cold water

  6. The skins should come right off the tomatoes. Granted there may be one or two who want to be difficult, but just take a knife and scrape the skin off

  7. Repeat steps 4 & 5 until all tomatoes are peeled
