seeding tomatoes

Lauren B. asked this question in the comments and I forgot about it until now. Sorry ...

Seeding a tomato is removing all the juice and seeds from the middle of it, so you're left with just the firmer fruit sections. How I do it is cut the tomato into wedges instead of slices. Then I run my thumb along the inside edge of the fruit to loosen the seeds and juice and pour it off. If I need the juice/seeds, I pour it off into the bowl I'm using. If I don't, I just dump it down the sink.

Let me know if that doesn't make sense, and I'll take pictures of it or something.
