Well, they are in the crockpot cooking. Hope they turn out good. They should as these were such gorgeous Vivia Italia tomatoes. That is one thing that I really love about those Vivia Italias (besides the taste which is great) is that they make such lovely perfect looking tomatoes.

I picked a nice batch of more Vivia Italias just now and since my first batch turned out so well I have decided I am going to stew these also. Will be blanching them a little later today.

Crockpot Stewed tomatoes-

Ingredients:
6 to 8 ripe tomatoes
2 tablespoons margarine
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

Preparation:
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.


I left out the chopped green pepper and I used 16 tomatoes but kept all the rest of the receipe the same as I don't like too much spicey. I ended up with a quart of stewed tomatoes. Oh yes, I only put a pinch of sugar.

Second batch turned out great also. This time I made a bigger batch so will be freezing it in portions later. My first batch made a quart and I would guess I have about three quarts this time, maybe more.

The stewed tomatoes are really easy to makes, especially in the crockpot. Really taste much better than the canned stewed tomatoes I usually buy.

The receipe did not say paste tomatoes, just tomatoes but I decided my paste type Vivia Italias would be perfect for this. And they were! Big Grin Thumbs up
