Peel the Tomatoes

Gently peel the tomatoes by pulling at the scored skin. The skin should come off easily; if it does not, use a sharp paring knife to scrape off any stubborn clingy bits.

That's it! Your tomatoes are ready to be further processed for canning, or simmered into velvety smooth tomato sauce, soup, and the like.
