Skinning tomatoes can sound like a daunting task, but fret not; it’s easier than it sounds. Cut a shallow cross in your tomatoes, skin deep only. Place the tomatoes in a bowl, and pour boiling water over them. Cover and leave for about 20 minutes. Your tomatoes will now be warm, so be careful when touching them. Use your fingers to carefully peel off the skin which will have loosened while the tomatoes were resting in the warm water.
