Comment: It is better to peel the tomatoes. To do so, dip them in boiling water for 30 to 40 s (until skin begins to detach), then transfer to a cold water bowl.
When seeding the tomatoes, I place the juice and the seeds in a strainer, over a bowl, then I use this "tomato juice" to moisten the slices of bread.
A suggestion is to roast the peppers before peeling them. not only does it help with the peeling, but it adds to the taste.
