NOTE:I'm going to give a brief description with how to blanch tomatoes (for those who don't know how). Bring a medium to large.
saucepan of water to a boil. Add the plum.
tomatoes. Boil for a couple of minutes (not so long that they become soft and mushy).While the water is boiling, have a large bowl.
filled with ice. Inside the larger bowl,.
have a smaller bowl that is filled with ICE COLD water (to make it this cold, refrigerate.
the smaller bowl filled with water). Remove tomatoes gently (so as not to bruise or mash them) with a soup ladle. Put them into cold water and allow them to cool down. When cool enough to handle, skins should slip off easily when you peel them.
