    Lois M's Note:

    I stewed a whole bushel today, but this is the recipe for one batch. I can these and use them for spaghetti sauce, crock pot chicken cacciatore and anything you would used canned tomatoes for. I never buy canned tomatoes anymore!

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    quarts

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Blanch, peel, core and quarter tomatoes.
    2. 2
      Heat olive oil in a large dutch oven.
    3. 3
      Add garlic and oregano, cook till garlic is tender and oregano is fragrant (about 2 minutes).
    4. 4
      Add chopped onion and peppers and cook until tender (about 5 min).
    5. 5
      Add tomatoes and sugar, simmer uncovered about 45 min or until desired consistency (you will need to cook longer if tomatoes are watery).
    6. 6
      Place in hot sterilized mason jars, and place in hot water bath, bring water back to the boil and boil for about 20 minutes longer, remove and let cool, re-bath any jars that don't seal.
    7. 7
      NOTE: Some people feel that the hot water bath method is not safe for this recipe, and that a pressure canning method should be used, however, I have always done these this way with no problem.
    8. 8
      I leave this up to your discretion.

      This is a really tasty receipe. I did use dried oregano and some dried Italian spice, and I also added 1 tbs. of salt, and it is really delicous. I have put it over steamed zucchini, in spaghetti sauce, and used it to make a rice and hamburger dish. YUMMY!!!!! Since I am at a high altitude I processed my pint jars for 45 minutes and I added 1 tbs. of lemon juice to each jar for safety. It was time consuming, but worth every minute.

      love this recipe, first thing I ever canned by myself and have been using it for a long time now. I add fresh basil, just at the very end, couple minutes before it goes in jars. I usually do pints, so I add 1 teaspoon of bottled lemon juice to each jar to add a little acid. I water bath and have never had a problem. Thanks for a great recipe!

      I can't believe I've never rated this wonderful recipe. I've used it many, many times and have always been very happy with it. I don't follow the amounts exactly as I'm sure Lois doesn't either when making a huge pot of them but it was this easy recipe that started me canning 4 years ago and it worked out so well it took away my fear of canning. I grow bushels and bushels every year now without worry. Thanks so much!!
