The summer season for outdoor theatre has arrived and we're thrilled to be working with Regent's Park Open Air Theatre once again to bring you the chance to win one of two family packages to see Peter Pan.
How to Skin and De-seed Tomatoes
Delia shows How to Skin and De-seed Tomatoes: make a small nick in the base of the tomato skin with a sharp knife and then just place them in a bowl.
Pour in boiling water from the kettle. If they are large tomatoes give them exactly one minute with a timer, the smaller ones will only take 30 seconds. After that immediately transfer them to a bowl of cold water. Then when they are cool enough to handle you will find the skins will slip off really easily.
If you need to de-seed them for a recipe, remove the stalk, slice each one in half, not through the stalk end but around the middle. Then hold each half and squeeze gently allowing the seeds to fall onto a plate. If there are any stray seeds they can be removed with a teaspoon.
