Video: How to core and quarter tomatoes

I spent a lot of my Labor Day in the kitchen with lots and lots of tomatoes.  I bought 10 pound from my local farmers market and though my intended sauce turned out like juice (this is the topic of another post, perhaps), I thought that it would be fun to start a tiny little how-to video series!

I have tons of recipe books, but sometimes instead of browsing through index after index I find it’s just easier to google stuff that I want to know instantly.

So here I am on the YouTube, in my teensy apartment kitchen (hey, a lot of awesome stuff comes out of that little room…), giving a quick lesson on how to core tomatoes.  The video is tiny, like my kitchen, because it was taken by iphone… but you’ll get the idea.

So, what do we think? Yay? Nay?  Want more of these? Let me know!

    1. Thanks, Tammy! Good to know and I’ll keep on keepin’ on. What other topics would you like to see? I’m thinking they should be little tiny tidbits like this rather than full on instruction on – say – baking a cake. Do you agree?

      1. Totally into tiny tidbits. How about the best way to chop an onion? Make the perfect egg (hard-boiled or fried)? I’m thinking of things that I didn’t learn until later.

Questions? Concerns? General accolades and words of love? Tell me what you think here:
