How to Peel a Tomato

Start with Fresh Ripe Tomatoes

Fill A large Sauce Pot with Water

After your Pot is full, fill a large bowl half way up with ice and cold water for a cool ice bath

Make a small shallow X on the Ugly Spot a.k.a the bottom of the tomato.

Do that on each and every ugly spot. Until you have something like this…

Hopefully by now your water is bubbling and boiling!

Place a tomato in the boiling bath for about 30 seconds or until you notice the skin starting to peel up.

30. 29. 28. 27. 26. 25. ok.. you get the point… just keep an eye on it.

Nice and Peely..

Dunk it right into the Ice Bath.. Keep it there until its cold throughout.

Keep repeating that whole process until your bowl is full of peely skin tomatoes.

Simply Peel the skin off each tomato. Some comes off easier than others but really this should be pretty simple!

Hopefully you end up with a bowl of these!

ENJOY your skinless tomatoes!!!

    Thanks for the tip! I would have gone straight to peeling them with a knife! Although – I’m a bit scared of peeled tomatoes. I think they look a little weird!

    This is the best advice. Very helpful. I have taken to boxed imported stewed tomatoes during off-season. This is terrific once the harvest begins :-) Thanks also for the pictures.
