Remove the core of a tomato by cutting around the stem end with a small serrated knife. Remove skin by scoring bottom of each tomato with an X, placing in boiling water for 10-30 seconds, then dipping quickly in cold water. The skins will slip right off. To remove seeds, cut off the top and bottom of tomato and squeeze the middle section gently. Remove any green stems on cherry or grape tomatoes before use.
