Garden Tomatoes (enough to fill at least half of a crockpot)
1/2 cup sugar
Garden Yellow Crookneck Squash (optional)
Slice the tomatoes and mix in the crockpot with the seasonings. I happened to have a squash from the garden and added it to the other ingredients. You can add any of your garden vegetables and cook with the tomatoes. Cook in crockpot 3-5 hours (I cooked my on high for that long.) Cool. Use for any tomato recipes.
When the tomatoes and squash were cooking, the aroma reminded me of stewed tomatoes and okra that my mother and grandmother used to cook. Another idea I had was to make tomato soup from the stewed tomatoes. Any other ideas on stewed tomato recipes? But what I'm going to do with this particular batch of stewed tomatoes is make my spicy salsa. The salsa should taste spicy and sweet!
