Peel Me a Tomato

Since I was a child I’ve always had a distaste for the skin of fruits and vegetables. To this day I find that removing the skin creates a different and subtler taste to tomatoes, peppers, asparagus, and even grapes. In France it’s more common, but I’m always surprised how few of my friends enjoy vegetables prepared this way. It’s easy to peel a tomato: immerse in recently boiled water for one minute, and then transfer to iced water. You’ll find the skin pulls off easily. They are perfect for a salad served as a light lunch or the first course to a meal in your summer garden, prepared with sliced egg and fresh tarragon.peeltomato
