processing garden produce
peeled tomatoes
preparation
Before you actually begin peeling the tomatoes you will have to gather the equipment needed and lay it out ready to start.

equipment needed
  • Large pot  To heat the water in
  • larger bowl  Filled with cold water
  • 2 bowls or high sided plates  To catch spillages of tomato pulp and juice
  • large slops bucket   To put the skins and used water in
  • Fowlers bottling unit or similar canning unit 
  • Fowlers jars, lids and clips or large jars with lids
  • Tongs
  • Knife   Either very sharp or with a serrated edge.  I use an old serrated steak knife.

Lay out the equipment in the order of the illustration below.  Have the slops bucket, Fowlers unit and spare jars, lids and clips nearby.
