Here is a good recipe for stewed tomatoes that I have on my site. This is a good way to use up the remaining tomatoes you may have on your vines!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Peel the tomatoes by soaking them in boiling water for one minute. Gently pull away the skin.
  2. Place tomatoes in a large pot and add the remaining ingredients.
  3. Cover and boil gently for 15 minutes, until tomatoes are tender.
  4. Serve with croutons.
  5. I like my stewed tomatoes with toast and butter.
  6. Whenever I am sick, this is the dish I crave! The above recipe is from the book out of print cookbook "cajun country cookin" by John and Glenna Uhler Enjoy!

This is a good recipe. However, I won't use as much sugar next time. I think one tablespoon of sugar per tomato is a little much. I like enough sugar to add some flavor and kill the acidity, but it was too sweet, for my personal taste.

We truly enjoyed this recipe - it reminded me of Mom and home. Because we don't use MSG I used 3/4 teaspoon seasoned salt (msg free) which was wonderful. I would suggest adding the sugar one table spoon at a time so you can season to your taste... some like it sweet... other not so much. !!!

I was making a Hamburger Stew that called for stewed tomatoes. As I only had standard canned tomatoes i decided I could find a way to stew them and as a result found this recipe. It's perfect, easy and made my stew FANTASTIC!!!
