*What’s the easiest way to peel tomatoes?
There are a few ways to do this, depending on how you’re going to use those tomatoes. If your tomatoes are firm and unblemished, a sharp vegetable peeler will often do the trick. The other popular way to peel tomatoes is blanching, and while this recipe calls for raw tomatoes blanching will only take a minute in hot water. With a sharp knife, cut an X in the bottom of the tomatoes. Toss them into a pot of boiling water, for no more than a minute, remove with a slotted spoon and drop into a bowl of ice water. Once cool, the tomato skins should slip off easily and they’ll still be raw.
