Best Answer

1Turn on the stove and begin boiling water. Prepare an ice bath high enough to cover the tomato. Step2 Clean the tomato of any debris and remove the tomato stem by twisting it off.

Step3 Score the bottom of the tomato with a paring knife. Do this by cutting an x on the bottom of the tomato. This will make it easier to peel away the skin once the tomato is blanched.

Step4 Immerse the scored tomato in boiling water. Leave the tomato in the boiling water for 30 to 45 seconds. Any longer than this and the tomato will begin to cook and the meat will soften.

Step5 Remove the tomato from the boiling water and immediately place it in an ice bath. This will ensure that the tomato does not continue to cook and makes peeling the skin a breeze.

Step6 Remove the tomato from the ice bath and peel away the skin with your fingers. The skin should come right off. If there are areas where the skin seems to be sticking, you can easily remove it with your paring knife.
