    Thomas Jefferson was an excellent cook. He was one of the first to use tomatoes in this country. This is an excellent dish! SOURCE : FRUGAL GOURMET

      This tasted soooo much better than canned stewed tomatoes from the store. I used light beer and fresh herbs from the garden, then froze it in quantities that will be perfect for adding to soup in the winter. The only thing I changed was using oil instead of butter. Thanks for a great way to use garden tomatoes and a new staple recipe.

      This recipe was just great! I know I'll be using this frequently this summer and fall to stock up my freezer for the winter! I used 9 romas and white grape juice (since there wasn't any wine in the house). I also added 3 T sugar since I like my tomatoes a little bit sweet. I was going to thicken them with some cornstarch but figured they would thicken a bit with the freezing and thawing process and I can always do that when we eat them just like I used to with canned tomatoes. Being as my 9 little romas only made 2 pts of tomatoes, I doubt they'll even make it to the freezer, but we'll see! Thanks for a great recipe!
