My husband wants me to tell you about his new discovery--BLOW TORCH
for: tomatoes and peaches... peeling. The other day, I used a boiling water blanch for tomatoes I was prepping for freezing (from our garden). When I showed him, he slightly grimaced. (I guess watering down his yield didn't thrill him too much.)
A few days later, my husband was prepping a small batch of tomatoes and peaches, for immediate eating. HE GOT OUT HIS LITTLE *BLOW TORCH*
-- he'd purchased it for KILLING WEEDS...go figure....but it turned out to be too small for that job. ANYWAY: HE POINTED IT (THIS LITTLE BLOW TORCH) AT HIS FRUITS...and it worked! Quickly broke and loosened their skins and made for easy peeling!!
He wants you to know....that if you have a torch
for your cream Brule, try it out on your fruits if you need to quickly prep them for peeling.
He is rather proud of his discovery.

I have a huge garden torch. I've had it for 30 years. the small ones, more of a kitchen size, were called red dragons. Hooks up to a propane tank or smaller canister. I use it on weeds etc during wetter seasons, on wheels strapped to a cart.
however.... when I want charred red peppers to make pepperonata I stem and core the peppers. lay halves, flattened as possible, on an old cookie sheet. (don't use a good one! ) I blast the peppers. no muss, no fuss, much easier than the broiler in the stove that doesn't work very well. things are too close or too far from it, and it sets off the smoke alarm in the house. do this outside on concrete not near anything flammable. for example, don't do this on your deck or on a nice stone patio! Fast and easy plus its a great garden tool but not during fire season.
