[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?
