It is the end of tomato season and I am canning as much tomato sauce as I can before the first freeze!

A lot of directions tell you to cut the tomato and either cut or scrape out the seeds. I do not have the time or energy for that. Here is how I seed tomatoes.

1. Cut tomato top off or slice the tomato

2. Slide your fingers along the little chambers that hold the seeds.



















3. Rinse under water to get rid of extra seeds.

Done! It is that easy. Now you can cook up those tomatoes and make some nice tomato sauce to can. You can also save the seeds to plant next year!

How do you seed tomatoes?

  1. Thank you! I honestly had no idea it could be so easy. I am in NO WAY good in the kitchen, and I just canned tomatoes for the first time in my life last week…and they have seeds all over the place. This will be a way better trick to add next time I go and get all Betty-Crocker. Seriously. Thanks.
