[MUSIC] I'm Justin Chapple from Food and Wine's test kitchen.
Join me as I demonstrate mad genius tips. [MUSIC] Small
tomatoes like cherry tomatoes or tomatoes on the vine are
sweeter and they make incredible homemade sauces. But the problem
is, when you're making the sauce, you need to peel
them. But I've got a mad genius tip that's gonna
show you the fastest way to peel them. So, we're
gonna start with our small tomatoes. I'm using tomatoes from
the vine. And I'm going to spread them on a
baking sheet and I know it sounds super simple, but
we're gonna pop them in a 500 degree oven for
about five minutes just until the skins wrinkle. [MUSIC] So
I pull these out of the oven and I let
them cool for about five minutes. And check this out.
The skin kind of cracks and wrinkles, but the tomato
is still intact. Now for the magic. [MUSIC] And that's
just the skin. Just like that. And if you look
at my bowl, I have my perfectly peeled tomato. Let's
see if we can do two at once. Oop, the
skin slides right off. How easy was that? [MUSIC] [BLANK_AUDIO]
