If you have a skimmer it will make this process much easier.

Procedure

Bring a pot of water to a boil. Score the tomatoes and blanch them for 30 seconds. This loosens the skin. Immediately shock in cold water; peel off the skin with a paring knife. Then slice through the equator and remove the seeds. Cut the tomatoes in an even dice.
