Preparation

1
Using a paring knife, remove the core of the tomato and make a cross-shaped incision on the bottom. Bring a large pot of water to a boil, then blanch the tomatoes for about 15 seconds.

2
As soon as the skin of the tomatoes start to curl around the incision, remove the tomatoes from the water and immediately plunge them into a bowl of ice to stop the cooking process. Once cool, remove the tomatoes from the ice, dry and remove the outer peel.

3
If you love to make creative garnishes, instead of throwing the peels, dry them in the microwave for about 6 minutes in order to make beautiful decorations for your favorite recipes.
