- Do not leave the tomato in the boiling water too long or it will start to cook. The idea is to only break the connection between the skin and the tomato flesh.
- An alternative way to peel the skin off after cooling it down is to (carefully) slide it off with your fingers. However, the acidity of the tomato can soon irritate under your fingernails, so be careful not to overuse this method.
- Try not to puncture the flesh of the tomato while peeling.
- Tomato is hot (only for a few seconds) when taken from the boiling water, so protect your hands.
