Peel tomatoes

If your recipe calls for peeled tomatoes – maybe you’re making a tomato pie or roasted chicken with whole peeled tomatoes around it – and you don’t have canned stewed tomatoes, you could be thinking, “Well how the heck do you peel a tomato without destroying it?” Use your microwave! Simply score the tomatoes, creating a few tiny x’s with a knife, and microwave for 25 seconds. The peel should come right off.
