I never cut into my tomato before blanching and the skins come off perfectly. I never remove the seeds either. I would think there is alot of nutrition in the seeds and it certainly doesn't harm the taste at all. Just seems like an unnecessary

I am trying to make a homemade pizza with the ingredients found at my local farmers' market. The even had a sour dough pizza dough, that is what inspired me. With this video I now have a fighting chance at the pizza sauce. I purchased tomatoes, fresh basil, fresh oregano, eggplant, grass fed beef, portugese sausage made with grass fed beef and local feral pig (it is the way things are done on the Big Island). I got to the market late so there is no spinach I do have some left over portugese kale that I could add. thanks for you help with the sauce...

This is the best method for getting rid of the seeds. They made me crazy. Also I was leaving the tomato in the hot water too long. Thanks for both of these tips. Can't wait to try that tomato soup recipe. You have helped me with so many ideas and also reading others that have commented and shared their ideas.
