Video: How to Peel Tomatoes

First you need to blanch your tomatoes. This is not to be confused with boiling them.  If you’re not sure about the difference, click on the key word ‘blanch’ on the left to see photos on the blanching process.

After you have cooled the tomatoes by plunging them in cold water, they are ready to peel.

  • Pinch a bit of the skin and gently pull.
  • It will slide right off.
  •  You may need to take your paring knife to remove the stem.
  • Dehydrate your skins separately and powder them to use in seasonings, soups, and salad sprinkles.
