219. To Remove the Skins of Tomatoes Quickly

To remove the skins of
tomatoes quickly, put them into a wire basket and sink it quickly into a

kettle of hot water. Do not let the tomatoes stand in the water long

enough to heat through, and plunge into cold water immediately from the

hot. Another way is to rub the skins backward with the blunt edge of a

knife. In this way the tomato does not need scalding, and according to

epicures is more tasty.
