How do you seed tomatoes?

Here are two simple ways to get rid of the seeds in a tomato.

  • When working with meaty plum or roma tomatoes, cut them in half and gently squeeze each half, as you would a lemon. The seeds will pop right out.
  • When your tomato is a juicier beefsteak tomato, cut the tomato in half and scoop out the seeds with your fingertip.
