How to Remove Tomato Skins

Tomatoes are great for making pasta sauce, ketchup, and even tomato jam! The peeling must be removed for all of these wonderful recipes, but it is a very simple process. In fact, it is easier than peeling an apple as long as you know how to boil water.

All you need is a pan for boiling the tomatoes and a bowl for a tomato ice bath. Don’t forget the knife for coring!

  1. Remove the stems and the cores from the tomatoes.
  2. Fill a pan with enough water to cover the tomatoes and boil. Make an ice bath in another pan or bowl.
  3. Place the tomatoes in the pan of boiling water just long enough for the skins to crack – about one minute – sooner for small tomatoes, longer for larger tomatoes.
  4. Remove the tomatoes from the boiling water and place in the ice bath to cool them just enough to handle.
  5. Remove from the ice bath and peel away the skins. They should slide right off.

  6. That’s it!
