How to skin tomatoes

Have you ever needed to peel the skin off a tomato? In some recipes it is required and also for some people the tomato skin is hard to digest.

  • We are going to need a kitchen torch, a bowl with ice water and a fork (in case you don’t have a kitchen torch, you can always use your gas top stove).
  • Insert the fork into a tomato at the stem.
  • Holding the fork from its handle burn the tomato’s skin with the torch or the gas stove. It helps if we score the tomato first.
  • Immediately place the tomato in the ice water.
  • In 1 minute, the skin will come off very easily just with your fingers. 
  • Also, it will give a great smoky flavor.
