Having cut all the tomatoes, put them in a pan in one layer and pour boiling water so that the water completely covers them. Keep tomatoes in the water 10 - 20 seconds. After the corners of the skin from the cuts begin to twist, drain the hot water and immediately fill them with cold running water.
