  1. Fill a large bowl with ice cubes and water and set aside.
  2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
  3. Cut an X in the bottom of each tomato with a knife.
  4. Place prepared tomatoes in the pot of boiling water and cook until the skins begin to peel off, 10 to 40 seconds.
  5. Transfer tomatoes to the bowl of ice water and allow to cool for 2 to 3 minutes. When cool enough to handle, peel the skin off each tomato.
  6. Cut each tomato in half crosswise and remove and discard the seeds; finely dice the flesh.



Pretty good tip for a cook to learn.

Very easy recipe. Thanks Chef John

Thank you for this, glad to know how to get the skins off!

Had a bumper crop of tomatoes, so I used this recipe in all of them, put portions in baggies and froze them for use later in the fall for chile, etc...
