I can't wedge tomatoes! Sat, 09/15/12 7:25 PM (permalink)
Ok, this could be elected for the stupidest thread ever started but I'm honestly having issues with this.
Trying to cut tomatoes into wedges for my chicago hot dogs.  I think I'm doing the cutting correctly but maybe the tomato I'm using isn't correct?  What happens is when they are cut all the "meat" or innards...where the seeds are....quite often they fall out so I'm just left with the rind.  I take the tomato and put the root or stem end down.  I then cut it in half vertically from butt to stem if that makes sense.  Then with those two halves I will cut wedges.  I'm cutting in the same direction and I can usually get 3 wedges from each half.  I"ve used on the vine, Roma (they were even worse with the fallling apart problem).  It can't be a huge beefsteak tomato because two wedges have to sit side by side in a hot dog bun.  Help!
