I've never tried removing seeds from canned tomatoes. That seems like it would be a mooky mess doing them like you would a fresh tomato

5 Star or A.R.
They're about the same.


I like my food mill and it does what it was made to do.

Ahh. I must have missed the turn in the road
One minute the conversation was about the seeds present in whole tomatoes and not the purees and the next you were talking about how easy it was to remove the seeds. For all I know, since I've never bought them, SM tomatoes came with the skins on. I thought you were talking about them.

Fresh tomatoes. Gotcha. I use a spoon to dig the seeds out. They never seem to come out when I squeeze them. They just hang there

When I'm using fresh tomatoes I take the seeds out for some things, pico de gallo comes to mind because I just made some... other stuff, too... Scrambled eggs... Things I don't want a lot of tomato liquids in. Especially in a warm dish. Unless I'm layering the top of a casserole with slices.

If you cut fresh tomatoes in half at the 'equator' rather than 'pole to pole' a quick squeeze and shake into the sink will de-seed them . It's also easier to just stick your impeccably clean finger into each cavity and expel the seeds and gel.

Note: Does not apply to canned tomatoes

Maybe I don't squeeze my 'maters hard enough. I always slice through the equater. And I squeeze. And the seeds just hang there... If I wanted crushed tomatoes I'd buy canned
Besides, I've got the spoon thing down pretty good A push, a twist, a flick of the spoon, wala!
