      Excellent stewed tomatoes and easy to preserve!! I wasn't sure about the number of tomatoes to use, I had 15 romas and the result was a little heavy on the herbs and salt. I will make adjustments when adding these stewed tomatoes to recipes and next time will use more tomatoes. I love the clear step by step directions which made it easy for a preserving rookie like myself!! Thank you so much for posting!

      With an overabundance of tomatoes (I used Roma) wanted to try canning stewed tomatoes and glad I chose this one as the taste wonderful. I followed the recipe right down to counting 50 tomatoes and it was perfect. Directions were so easy to follow for this first time canner of tomatoes. I was so proud of the looks of my jars when finished. I know I'll be using this one every summer when those tomatoes come out.

      I started making this recipe in 2010 and it's THE BEST. When making a recipe that needs tomatoes, onions, & peppers, I cheat and put in a jar of these. The flavor is so wonderful. Thanks Chili Dan for sharing this recipe with us.
