Peeling actually seems pretty easy, actually. It sounds like it might even be fun! You just place the tomatoes in boiling water briefly and then icy cold water, and supposedly they start peeling on their own. No peeler required.
Even still, it’s another step, right? That’s why I usually just buy organic crushed tomatoes in a glass jar. Never use a can because the acid will leach out the chemicals. I like Jovial brand, or bionature.
Well, last week, I had so many small plum tomatoes from my CSA share that I just had to make sauce. But the tomatoes were so small (like large grape tomatoes) that the thought of going through the whole peeling process didn’t sound too appealing. I, for one, spend enough time in the kitchen as it is!
So, what do I do when I have an ingredient and don’t know what to do with it? I look through my cookbooks, and/or do an internet search for a recipe. To my surprise, there was a way to make it without peeling the tomatoes! Just slice, roast, and puree them, just as it was done in this recipe! What could be easier than that?
