Daily Eats Tip: How to Peel a Tomato

New York, New York – In another effort to make peeling easier, in the past I talked about peeling mango, I learned this trick over the weekend from my friend, Larry. He was making his amazing Watermelon Gazpacho which called for tomatoes.

First, he made sure he washed his home grown tomatoes clean. Then he put the whole sweet tomatoes into a pot of boiling water for a minute. After the minute the tomato skin is soft enough to pull off.

BE VERY CAREFUL the tomatoes will be hot! Watch your fingers!

If the tomato isn’t naturally scored from the heat I suggest gently scoring the skin before placing the whole tomato into the pot of boiling water.
