It is good to grow tomato plants in any backyard garden. I have self-sewn cherry tomato this year, the harvest was not plenty but enough for us. We eat them as salads, and for cooking, but some of them used as tomato concasse and here it is, I will show you how to do it.

Tomato concasse is a tomato that has been peeled, seeded (seeds and skins removed), and chopped to specified dimensions (wikip)

Using Cherry Tomatoes.

Soak in hot boiling water, for one minute for easy peeling.  Score each tomato before putting into hot water and drain to transfer to cold water.  Peel the tomato immediately.

Use the tomato for the base of sauces, and for other garnishes.

The Process
Use a pair of scissors to score the tomatoes before putting in hot water.

I serve it for salads, add into pasta dishes, or chopped up to make tomato soup or tomato sauce. You could discard the seeds before using the tomato if you wish.

Cherry Tomato Salad with Fresh Herbs

Ingredients that readily available in your pantry and cannot afford not to have are anchovies, pasta, olive oil.  To serve the pasta, you don’t need any cheese.

Using tomato concasse to add to pasta.


From the pantry: anchovies, capers, olive oil, add the concasse tomato, fresh herbs to cooked pasta to make a delicious pasta dish.

Delicious meal and easy preparation.

You can make lots of tomato concasse using large tomatoes and cherry,  place in a clean jar, refrigerated for healthy keeping.  It could stay there for a few days.

Happy Harvest Day for You All.
Have fun of making the Tomato Concasse.
