Here is another delicious and super simple tomato recipe. If you’ve been wondering how to make stewed tomatoes, you will love this simple crockpot recipe. It’s as easy as peeling the fresh ripe tomatoes and cooking them with a few veggies and spices in your slowcooker. Couldn’t be simpler, but it really makes the sweetness of the tomatoes come out. What a great summer side-dish.
- 7 large ripe tomatoes
- 1 medium onion (chopped)
- 3/4 cup celery (chopped)
- 1/2 cup green pepper (chopped)
- 2 tbsp butter or margarine
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/8 tsp pepper
- 2 small bay leaves
Blanch tomatoes first. To do this, score an “X” on the bottom of each tomato and place them into boiling water for 20 seconds. Then remove tomatoes from boiling water and place into a bowl of ice water. This process makes it very easy to peel the tomatoes quickly.
After peeling you can core the tomatoes and remove the seeds. Place all ingredients together in a crock pot and cook on low heat for 8 hours.
