Use This Easy Technique To Peel Tomatoes In No Time
3. Use A Cold Bath To Cool Them Down
While the tomatoes are in the simmering water, prepare a cold bath for them in a large bowl filling it with cold water. If you have a bag of ice, add some cubes to make it even colder. Let the tomatoes cool down completely in a couple of minutes. This is important as you want to maintain their juicy, tender texture inside, while being able to peel the skin. Skipping this step will result in a mushy, unpleasant tomato flesh, which you definitely want to avoid.
