How to Cut Round Tomatoes Crosswise to Seed

By Shelley Wiseman, Senior Food Editor

June 25th, 2014

Recipes like the Summer Tomato Jam from Fine Cooking #130 call for the tomatoes to be seeded before cooking. If you're using big, round tomatoes, cut them across the equator, rather than lengthwise (as you would for a plum tomato). This exposes the many seed chambers, making it easier to flick the seeds out with your finger or the handle of a small spoon.
