It only takes 30 seconds in the boiling water to get the skin to start loosening. Leave the tomatoes in the ice water for about the same length of time. It’s a shame that this site didn’t bother to answer your questions or revise the video to show this.

When growing up, my mom and I used to Can tomatoes and this is how we removed the skins. Well except for the fact that we didn't have a lot of ice so we just used cold water- they peeled fine.

Yes the timing needs to be expressed better! Seasoned cooks know it is a short time or as one sees a curdling to the peel but timing is everything!

Yes, this tip is very helpful except for leaving off the time to boil & shock. =(
