Prepare the container that you will use to marinate the tomatoes. Sterilize and pat dry it with a clean towel. For these kinds of pickling recipes, I usually use an airtight glass container (mine is about 4 lb). You can easily use a pot with a lid if you do not have one. A jar is unsuitable for these pickled tomatoes, as peeled tomatoes become fragile after marinating. You risk mashing them trying to grab some.

Wash and clean vegetables. You will need onion, garlic cloves, bell pepper, chilli pepper, dill, and parsley. Slice them.

How to peel tomatoes?

To get a smoother and silky texture, as well as to fasten the marinating process, I permanently removed the skin on the tomatoes. For pickling, it is better to choose medium to small-size tomatoes. For this recipe will work great Roma or cherry tomatoes.

An easy way to do this quickly is to scald the tomatoes in boiling water. Wash tomatoes in running water, gently rubbing them to remove dirt and residues. Grab a sharp knife and lightly cut a criss-cross slit at the bottom of each tomato. Meanwhile, bring to boil a large pot of water. Once bubbling, drop tomatoes gently into a pot. Switch off the heat and let them sit for 3-4 minutes. When the time has elapsed, remove the tomatoes and let them cool. It will take you just a few minutes. Now, handle tomatoes gently, and using a small knife, remove the skin of each tomato. It should peel easily, otherwise, you should send them again in bubbling water.
