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.
