okay, I know that this is going to sound odd, and there are going to be a million little italian nona’s cursing my name, but I think I just figured out the fastest way to core roma tomatos for sauce.
I just picked up a new 3/4 inch spade bit for a project I was about to finish… I will post that one next week too, and I noticed that the bit was the same size as a tomato core. I washed the bit and put it in my cordless drill. I held the tomato over the sink, set the point of the bit in the middle of the core… and with one tap, the core was gone. I just finished dealing with 50 pounds of tomatos in under one hour ( a job that used to take all afternoon.
I can’t tell you how fast and clean it was.
My wife thinks I am nuts for admitting this in public, but I just thought I would share the idea and if nothing else a chuckle.
