Quick Diced Tomatoes

This is a quick little trick to dice tomatoes. The video is a time lapse so I’ll do a little explaining first.

First you’ll need 2 dowels (1/2 inch) , a good sharp knife, a cutting board and of course some tomatoes.

After you wash your tomatoes place them stem side down between the dowels.

Next shave a thin slice off the top of the tomato and discard.

Now slice your tomatoes, using the dowels to stop you from going all the way through.

turn tomatoes on their side and finish the dice.

take the caps, place them exposed side down on your cutting board, place your index finger on the dimple where the stem was and dice the cap of the tomato around it.  Rinse and repeat.

Minimal waste, very efficient.
