How to Blanch Tomatoes

Heat water in a vessel, allow it to boil.

Take a seperate vessel filled with cold water.

 Remove the stems from each tomato.

Make a shallow cut in the shape of an x on the bottom of each tomato with a knife.

Drop the tomatoes in water and boil for about a minute; once the skin starts to peel back, they are ready.(Don't overcook them).

 Remove the tomatoes immediately and drop them in the cold water

Now you can easily remove the skin from the tomatoes.
