Recipe for Stewed Tomatoes


12 tomatoes
half green bell pepper, chopped (optional)
half onion, chopped (optional)
1 TBS butter
1 tsp salt
freshly ground black pepper
1 tsp white sugar

Pour boiling water over tomatoes to remove the skin. Cut into pieces and add the green pepper, onion, butter, salt, pepper and sugar; slowly simmer for 30 minutes.    

NOTE: If you want the tomatoes thicker for a recipe, just add 1 tablespoon of cornstarch with a little water to make a paste, OR 1/2 cup breadcrumbs.

This is a really simple way to get fresh tomatoes into your dish. If you want to add garlic powder now, feel free to do so.

Makes wonderful chili and goulash.
