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!

  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!

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!!!

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.

I gave this 5 stars. My family loves this recipe! The first time I made this was the summer of 2007 with fresh tomatoes from the Farmers Market and it was yummy. This recipe taste just like the Stewed Tomatoes K-Mart Family Restaurant serves. The copy of the recipe I have is slightly different it does not call for green pepper. The sugar is 1-2 Tbl. I add 1/4 cup chopped onion. When I made these tonight I used 8 small tomatoes and Splenda for the sugar. Overall this is a great recipe! Thanks for posting such a great recipe!
