Many tomato dishes such as tomato sauce and tomato soup requires peeling the skin off a tomato. While peeling a fresh tomato is almost impossible, it's quite easy to peel a blanched tomato.

Blanching is very simple and can be utilized with different kinds of vegetables. Other uses for blanching includes softening a vegetable or preserving its color.
