    I thought that was the way to take skins off of tomatoes easily, but wasn’t sure. I have a recipe that you can do with canned or uncanned tomatoes, whichever you have available.
    Thanks!

    Hi Toni,

    It’s a great way to skin tomatoes and doesn’t waste one bit of the tomatoes. I’m so in love with summer, vine-ripened tomatoes that the rest of the year I cook exclusively with canned tomatoes. Tomatoes are canned next to the fields they’re grown in so the quality is much better than that of pale, off-season imitations shipped cross-country. Last winter, though, we did eat a lot of fresh grape tomatoes. They were almost as good as the real summer variety.

    Thanks for commenting.
