How do you get the seeds out after you take the skins off? do you put them in the ice water and leave them? they are just to mushy and turn into a mushy mess for me, maybe Im leaving them in the boiling water to long, about 40 seconds.
I really want to use all these tomatos I grew this year, I was thinking of canning the sauce.

If you want a really smooth sauce, you're going to have to strain it to get the seeds out. You could remove the seeds ahead of time, I suppose, by peeling the tomato, then cutting it in half, and squeezing it to get the seeds out. That would get a good number out.

To make juice/smooth sauce, I use a food mill that gets everything out.

If I'm just making spaghetti, I don't usually worry about the seeds, just peel, coarse chop, and then I simmer a good long time.
