I’ve heard of this before, but I’d never tried it myself. I was making Tomato Cucumber Salad for Saturday night’s dinner, and I wanted to peel the tomatoes quickly.
I started a pot of boiling water. Then, with tongs, I plunged the tomatoes for about 15 seconds (just count to 15). The skin peeled right off without the tomatoes tasting cooked at all. Try it! It’s an awesome trick!
