How-To: Easily Peel Tomatoes

So I was making these amazinggg Chicken "Paninis"with Mozzarella with Salsa Rossa, and the salsa called for peeling tomatoes. Um, ok. I thought this was simple. No. No it's not. Unless you use this trick...

*2 vine-ripe tomatoes
*small saucepot of boiling water

*Heat small saucepot of boiling water (didn't I say this already?).

*Make a small cross at the base of the tomatoes.

*Plunge tomatoes into boiling water for 20 seconds. Drain, then peel the skin away when the tomatoes are cool enough to handle.


Cross at the base

Boiling 20 seconds

And voila! The peels came off in less than 20 seconds! How easy is that?
