How to de-seed a tomato.

I’ve found the easiest way to remove seeds is to use a straw and scrape the seeds out with it  (don’t slurp the seeds out, you’re just using the straw as a tool. Also, I’ve found that its better to use a sturdy straw rather than a flimsy one). But if I had one of those nifty seeding spoons I’d probably use that.

Step 1: Cut the tomato in half.

Step 2: Use a sturdy straw to scrape the seeds out into the trash, down the sink, or into your compost pail.

Whala…you’re done. Continue doing whatever you were planning with the perfectly de-seeded tomato.
