Although Tips for eating fruits and vegetables They always go through preserving the skin as much as possible, there are dishes that appreciate its absence such as tomatoes, which in certain preparations, once peeled, is much easier to eat. This is the case with some salads, in which the texture of the skin does not make it possible to enjoy the dish.
Peel tomatoes It is not a pleasant task. Using a knife you lose a lot of pulp and also a lot of time. The easiest way to do this is by scalping them in boiling water for a few seconds. It may seem an excessive paraphernalia, but it is a work that can be organized perfectly while we prepare the dish, dedicating ourselves to other necessities while the water reaches boiling point.
How to peel the tomatoes
Fill a deep saucepan with water and bring to a boil. We place the tomatoes on the table, and apply a cross cut on the bottom. When the water is boiling, we submerge a tomato and keep it for 10 to 20 seconds, removing it with the help of a clamp or skimmer.
You have to be very precise when control the time, otherwise the superficial part of the tomato would be cooked. It is preferable to introduce them a little more in the water to obtain a tomato with the pulp decomposed.
We pass it immediately by the jet of cold water and we will notice how the skin that surrounds the cross retracts. We will then use a knife to remove it easily and simply.
My advice is to do this work piece by piece, otherwise it will be difficult to control the times and it is possible that some copies are too cooked.
It is also advisable to carry out this work well in advance if you wish to perform a salad or a cold plate, introducing the tomatoes in the refrigerator once peeled, so that they cool properly.
