I don't mind the seeds, either. BUT, and this is a big "but", if you are cooking for someone with severe diverticulitis, all those seeds may have to go. I do have a food mill, but only because I put up a lot of tomatoes in the fall and it is a great shortcut. Upon freezing those skins get very tough, and sometimes the seeds get bitter, but mostly I am short on space and want to concentrate the tomatoes and this is a good step. I would never bother to seed canned tomatoes unless Mom or someone else with intestinal problems was coming to dinner.
