Chefs and Home Cooks!

How do you go about peeling a fuzzy peach or a smooth tomato?  Some folks are aggravated or repulsed by the “fur” on peach skins and  irritated by tomato skins that have some off loose in their soup.  So, how to remove these fruit peels easily and quickly without a mess and cut fingers  is a situation in the kitchen.

Fuzzy Peaches and Smooth Tomatoes –

Multitasking Tools for A-Peel

A number of methods can be used for peeling tomatoes and peaches. these include a plunge into a boiling water bath in an open pot or kettle, which makes tomato skins crack. This happens in just a few seconds and the tomato can be removes, plunged a few seconds into ice water to remain uncooked and its skin peeled off fast – it fairly well JUMPS off the tomato! Peach skins need to be scored first, lightly with a paring knife and the system then works the same way for the peach. Remember to plunge it into the ice water bath before zipping off the peel so that the fruit does not cook. The change in temperature also helps to pull the skin away from the fruit and the fruit to shrink away from the skin. 

Chefs and cooks also apply peelers and knives to peaches and tomatoes with good results, depending on their skills and preferences.

See the link above for a range of attractive and even cute peelers and some beautiful knives in a range of prices.
