Peeling Tomatoes

Since Brent and I have began canning tomatoes and making homemade salsa, my mother-in-law taught me the coolest trick I thought I would pass along!

Peeling Tomatoes!!

First, put tomatoes in a pot of boiling water and let boil for  5-10 minutes (or until skin starts to wrinkle)

Once they are wrinkled, dump immediately into ice cold water! (I use my sink) *You may have to continue to add cold water... because these babies are HOT!
Once they are cool enough to touch, just peel the skin away! (Don't forget the "inside" is still hot, so be careful!)  Super easy!! 
We have been storing them in Ziploc bags, to use in spaghetti sauce, salsa, chili, etc.!
Who knew it could be so easy?!?!?!
