I have a quantity of tiny tomatoes that I want to use up making soup. Someone suggested I roast them to remove the skins, any ideas please? Thankyou for any suggestions

I always roast tomatoes for soup, intensifies their flavour as well as loosening the skins.

Soak in very hot water.
Put them in a big bowl, cover with boiling water. As they are little leave only for 30 seconds then put in to a bowl of iced or very cold water.
The skins will come off easily but I do prefer the flavour of tomato soup when the tomatoes have been roasted.

My mother just used to dunk them in boiling water.
I took my guide from the word 'tiny' in the OP - skinning normal sized toms is easy using the boiling/cold water method.
Roast with a bit of sea salt, olive oil and pepper if you like it. The skins will fall off and the flavour of your soup will be fabulous ( send me some please lol!)
Is there a reason to skin them? I think the skins add flavour. But if you hate them on your teeth, then you need to do as advised. Do the seeds bother you?
I can't stand the skins, I peel all tomatoes even in salads. I don't mind the seeds so much, but I would sieve tomatoes if I was making a soup. Seeds in soup are not nice.
roast, a low temperature work better I think.....
are they cherry toms or larger? Seeds in cherry ones are virtually non-existant.
Tiny.
The tiny ones I roast with oil and salt. Then use a hand blender for soup and spaghetti sauce. Skins seem to disappear. I only take the skins off very big ones
Life's too short to peel a tomato. And I once met someone who's mum used to peel mushrooms!
My FIL would only eat grapes if they were peeled!
I peel mushrooms...ok, I'm weird!
