I don't have a gas flame to peel a tomato I put them into boiling water for a few seconds until the peal starts to curl. I hadn't heard of the idea of coating lemons with wax to keep them for 2 to 3 months but I will do that. To peel peppers preheat the broiler and place the peppers in a broiler pan and place under the broiler for about 10 to 15 minutes until black. cover with a damp cloth or place in a paper bag. Set aside to cool. When they are cool remove the skins. and use as recipe calls for them..

Because when peppers' skins are cooked, they tend to toughen up and tighten so if they are peeled first they remain nice and tender.
