How To - Deseed Tomatoes

Tomato Seeds.  They're messy, tough, bitter and at times, downright unwanted! I often deseed my tomatoes, for recipes like my vegetable sambal or chilli jam. There are two quick ways to deseed tomatoes and here they are:

1. Halve tomatoes and scoop out seeds with a spoon.  While this is quick and easy, it can bruise the delicate flesh of the tomatoes.

2.  Quarter tomatoes and very carefully run a sharp knife between the seeds and the flesh.  This method is a little more delicate, however, it will preserve the integrity of the tomato.  This is the method I use.

And it's that simple!  So, when you need to deseed tomatoes for dips, salads, sauces or just because you prefer them that way, you can choose either of these super simple methods!
