No, you don't have to do all of that. You just coarse grind it all. I've never had to peel a tomato. I also, grow seedless tomatoes which makes it easier. This is a quick and easy way to do freezer tomato sauce. Been doing this for about 15 years.

this was not mentioned i am sure you need to peel tomatoes, put in boiling water for few minutes,then put in ice water and the skins come right off. then continue with the recipe its really good
