How To: Remove seeds from canned tomatoes

Remove seeds from canned tomatoes

CHOW member Eric Higgins uses whole canned tomatoes to cook. As their seeds spoil the food by giving a bitter taste, he gives us step-by-step instructions to remove them using a salad spinner.
1. Drain away the extra juice and put the whole tomatoes into the salad spinner.
2. Break open the whole tomatoes to release the juice & seeds.
3. Give a few quick spins and the centrifugal force will throw the seeds to the outside away from the tomatoes.
4. Strain them yourself.
Following the above procedures the tomatoes are ready to be roasted or chopped.
