How To Blanch Tomatoes
"Blanching tomatoes is a cooking technique. It means to quickly submerge the fresh tomatoes in boiling hot water. That way the skin is loosened from the tomato pulp and it starts to crack. This only takes 30-60 seconds at most. The tomatoes are then kept in cold water to stop the cooking process immediately. That way the tomatoes can be easily peeled, which is the ultimate reason why you want to blanch your tomatoes. This is useful if you need whole tomatoes in a recipe. They can then be used to make a soup, a salad, or you can store and freeze your peeled whole tomatoes. "
