How to Peel Tomatoes…Kitchen Tip

Here is an easy Kitchen Tip on peeling tomatoes that I use every year.
 
Here is just ONE collection of tomatoes from our garden this year…

 

Once you get them all washed, put a small “X” in the bottom of each tomato and submerge in

boiling water for 30 seconds…

 
Immediately place the tomatoes into a bowl of ice water…
 
 
Then careful pick up a tomato and begin to pull the outer layer of skin off…
 
 
The outer layer of skin comes off very easily.  I was having fun trying to get it off in one piece…

Once the tomatoes have cooked in the crock pot you can process them following the steps
for a water bath canner or you can freeze them in freezer-safe plastic containers.  
I have done both ways.
