Fresh Tomato Skinning and Seeding:
Skinning tomatoes is easy, make a criss-cross slit on base of the tomato and immerse in boiling water for 30 seconds- peel with ease.
Seeding tomatoes- I've used different gadgets and techniques. The best I've found is by using a small bowl of water and my hands. Simply cut the tomato across the top and dig the tomato seeds out and discard into a small bowl of water. Then separate the tomato into large pieces and shake in the bowl of water to help remove remaining seeds. Strain the water (reserve for recipe) and discard the seeds.
