Peeling tomatoes

We have LOTS of fresh tomatoes in our garden this year.  Way more than we can possibly eat.  So, I'm freezing some and using some to make homemade sauces. Peeling tomatoes is super easy.  All you need is a pot of boiling water and a bowl of ice water!

1.  Bring a large pot of water to a boil.  Make an 'x' just through the skin on the bottom of each tomato.

2.  Very carefully drop the tomatoes in the boiling water.  Allow to boil for 5-10 seconds, remove and place in an ice bath.
3.  Once tomatoes have cooled, remove from the water and peel at the 'x'.  Voila!
