*How to skin tomatoes*

There are two ways to skin tomatoes:

  1. You can boil the whole tomatoes for 2 minutes and then put in a ice bath. The skins will peel right off. You can then cut the tomatoes in half and scoop out the seeds.
  2. The other option is slicing the tomatoes in half. Scoop out the seeds then rub the tomato against a cheese grater. This is a great option if you are short on time since the tomatoes are already broken down.
