For easy peeling of tomatoes simply penetrate the skin of the tomato with a knife to make a "x" then add the tomato to boiling water and watch for when the skin peels back or spreads in a stretchmark-like manner!
X marks the spot, add the circle (tomato) to the pot!
Can be used with other foods such as peaches!
To prevent mould forming on top of your tomato paste, pour a thin film of oil over the surface of the paste to stop the air reaching the surface. Alternatively, freeze paste in level-tablespoon portions in ice-cube trays. When the paste is frozen, transfer to a bag and seal tightly.
