Tip: to peel a tomato, bring a small saucepan filled with water to a lively simmer; using a fork, spear the top of the tomato where the stem used to be and dunk into the simmering water to a count of 10 seconds; remove tomato and being careful not to burn yourself, peel the tomato with a paring knife.
