How to peel and seed fresh tomatoes – A crucial technique for the perfect tomato sauce!


Hello and welcome. I’m Viviane, with foodandstyle.com.
You’ll need 3 pounds of tomatoes for this recipe. With a little paring knife, make a
little cross on top of your tomatoes like this. Now bring a large pot of water to a
boil, and when the water is boiling, just place to tomatoes right in it. We’re going
to blanch them to loosen their skin, and that is going to take anywhere from 30 seconds
to about a minute, depending on the ripeness of the tomato and on the thickness of their
skins. Meanwhile, have a bowl of water with ice cubes next to your pot here. As soon as
the skins get loose from the slit, you know the tomatoes are ready. So now plunge them
in the cold water. This one is ready too. Now you can just remove the skins — you see,
they come right off. Cut the tomatoes in half, remove the core, and then cut it in segments
so that you have access to all the seeds. Now, with your thumb, just remove the seeds
and put them in a little bowl. You don’t have to try to remove every single seed. We just
want to basically remove most of them, and especially the juices. Once you’ve finished
seeding your tomatoes, pour the seeds and the juices in a medium sieve and then stir
and press it so that all the juice comes out the other end, and you’ve only got the seeds
left. Make sure to scrape the juices at the bottom of your sieve here, and now you can
discard your seeds. Look at this beautiful fresh tomato juice!
