Secrets of Success

X Marks The Spot!



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!

More Information:

Can be used with other foods such as peaches!

  • Yes the skins of many vegetables are VERY nutritious. This tip is for those who prefer not to eat them. It is more of a choice of preference! - by YOUNGCASS
  • It's not you, it's folks who keep talking about having to peel veg. Don't the skins hold lots of vitamins and/or minerals? I am still a baby in Spark terms, and there are so many things to learn. Some things confuse or baffle me.
