Discover the Easiest Way to Peel Tomatoes without Any Special Kitchen Tools

This kitchen trick on How to Peel Tomatoes doesn't use any kitchen tools to do this simple task, all it uses is some water and lots of it. You might ask why you even need to peel a tomato in the first place. Typically tomatoes are bought fresh, or in cans that already have the fruit peeled. For most of the tomato preparation tasks, it's not a task that is necessary. And if you are using tomatoes that will be served raw, for a gazpacho recipe, salsa recipe or salad recipe there's almost no reason to skin them first. As for recipes that require cooking tomatoes, it's usually better to grab a can of whole tomatoes, which not only come pre-peeled in a can but are also of better quality than the fresh tomatoes that are available most of the year. And, for those times when you are going to cook with fresh tomatoes when making a pasta recipe with blistered cherry tomatoes, the skins are just fine the way they are. With that said there are still going to be times when this simple kitchen tip will come in handy. One of the best examples is when you're canning your own perfectly ripe summer tomatoes. Another good example is when you're making recipes like a raw tomato coulis recipe, in which the bits of the skin may ruin the texture of the sauce recipe. If you do need ever to peel your tomatoes, remember that the first thing you'll want to do is get a big pot of water boiling.
