The only thought I have is to leave the coring until after the skin has been removed.

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. =(

Great video but how long you leave the tomatoes in the boiling water?
