Prep Time 5 min Cook Time 5 min Serves 2 cups diced tomatoes     adjust servings

Say goodbye to canned tomatoes!


  • 6 vine ripened tomatoes (you can use more if you like, I just had 6 on hand)
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt


  1. Wash and core the tomatoes.
  2. Bring a large saucepan to a boil.
  3. Drop the tomatoes in the water. Leave them there for 1 minute, then drain the water, and throw them in a ice water bath to cool them down. About 1 minute.
  4. Once the tomatoes are cooled, you can easily peel the skins off.
  5. After the skins are peeled, dice the tomatoes.
  6. Put the diced tomatoes back in the sauce pan with the salt and any other seasonings you may want to add. Let them simmer for about 5 minutes.
  7. Remove and store. I stored mine in a glass mason jar in the fridge. You can freeze them as well. Just make sure you use a freezer safe container.
  8. This recipe make about 2 cups diced tomatoes. That is equal to a 15oz can of diced tomatoes.
