Found a New Way to Peel and Seed Tomatoes!

I did some research today and found a simpler method for peeling and seeding tomatoes in preparation for use in your pizza sauce recipe.

Let's assume we want about 3 cups of pizza sauce. We will need about ten tomatoes.

First, bringing a pot of water to boil – enough water to place about 8 tomatoes in. Drop those eight tomatoes in the boiling water for about one minute, then grab them with a spoon and chill them quickly. The best way to do that is in an ice bath, if you're really adventurous, I suppose you could throw them in your freezer. Once the tomatoes are cool enough to handle, you'll notice that the skins slough right off – which is exactly what we want. A quick squeeze will jettison the seeds. Excellent! Now we're ready to quarter and pure tomatoes. The remaining two tomatoes are going to go in our simmer later for added texture and flavor.

I'm really excited about this method, because my old method – skinning with a peeler, then cutting and removing seeds by hand – had a couple of big disadvantages. First, it took a long time. I was not a fan of that. Second, a lot of "tomatoey goodness" ended up getting wasted – I'm not particularly good with a peeler, and my fingers tended to swipe away a lot of flesh with the seeds. So, this method allows you to spend more time performing other pizza making tasks – chopping vegetables, preparing dough, and the like. It also makes sure that your pizza sauce has a great, robust flavor.
