Before you start trying to peel your tomatoes just like that, please do yourself a favor a consider this much easier technique.

Boil a pot of water. 

Cut a cross at the bottom of each tomato and then place them in the boiling water for 1 minute.

Place the tomatoes in a bowl of either cold water or ice water, I do a combination. 

Remove the tomatoes and just with a little gentle rub, the peel should come right off!

 This is when I realized, maybe I should take pictures to document this process... which is why there are only two lonely tomatoes left in the pot.
