I bet one of the burning questions you wanted answered in your life is, "How do I juice a tomato?"
Your burning life question is,
"How do I get a date with Hugh Jackman aka Wolverine?"
Yeah. That's mine too.
Sorry. Since I can't get you (or me) a date with Wolverine I'll just answer your second burning life question....how to juice a tomato.
Pick (or buy) some juicy red tomatoes from your garden (or grocery).
Place tomatoes in boiling water for a few minutes....
...until the peel starts to split. The time the tomato needs to sit in the boiling water depends on size, variety, ripeness but just a few minutes should do the trick.
Place hot tomatoes in a bowl of cold water and allow to cool.
When the tomatoes are cool peel the skins and throw them away. I had all kinds of sized tomatoes in my garden this year. I'm desperate for tomato juice (you'll see why tomorrow) so I even used teeny tomatoes....
...though the big ones are best for juicing.
Then smoosh your tomatoes with a wooden pestle, or your hands...wooden spoon....whatever. Let your toddler stomp the juice out...that works!!
Look at all that bright red juice! I'm so excited! I can't stand to drink tomato juice straight; I have some much better in mind for it! (I'll share it tomorrow!)
Keep smooshing until all you have left is just a small pile of pulp at the bottom.
Then transfer your juice to a clean milk jug, a cut off pop bottle makes a great funnel, and refrigerate until needed. I've even put juice in the freezer for a few weeks until I needed it.
There, I've answered your burning question...well, at least your second one.
I'm still waiting for an answer to the Hugh Jackman/Wolverine question.
But, can anyone tell me WHY I can't get my photos turned?? I've tried editing in two different programs and I can't get them posted here in the right direction. Has any other blogger had this problem? Any suggestions?
