STEWED TOMATOES IN CROCKPOT!


STEWED TOMATOES IN CROCKPOT


Homemade stewed tomatoes from the crockpot for freezing. When the tomatoes are abundant this is a great way to use some of them and have stewed tomatoes for dishes when the winds are cold and the snow is blowing outside and you're all warm and ready to dig in to some good food.



INGREDIENTS

6 to 8 ripe tomatoes
2 tablespoons margarine (I use bacon grease)
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
3/4 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped green pepper
3 tablespoons sugar (more or less)
1 small bay leaf
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper

DIRECTIONS

Core tomatoes; place in boiling water for about 15 to 20 seconds, then into ice water to cool quickly; peel.
Cut tomatoes in wedges. In Crock Pot, combine all ingredients.
Cover and cook on low 8-9 hours.
Remove bay leaf. Sprinkle top with parsley, if desired.
 Serve as a side dish or freeze in portions for soups or other recipes.
Serves 6.
Recipe may be doubled.

Sue,
I could barely believe my eyes when I saw you had posted on your blog. I'm not much for stewed tomatoes but I'm glad to see you are okay. I've missed checking in with you and I hope you are well.
