Tomatoes are in season and ripening at an amazing rate. Time for me to break out the stew pots and start cooking up some salsa, stewed tomatoes and chopped tomatoes for future recipes.
Step one to any tomato based recipe is to prep the tomatoes properly in a hot and cold water bath.
Step 1: Clean the tomatoes, cut off the stems and bruised spots
Step 2: Dunk in boiling water for about 30 seconds until the skins start to wrinkle
Step 3: Remove from boiling water and dip in a bowl of cold water
Step 4: Skins should then easily slip off the tomatoes
