This is a recipe that might cause you to faint, I’m warning you now. I was expecting average stewed tomatoes, but I ended up sitting at the counter with a spoon eating them out of the pot when they were done. Matthew was in another room, so I knocked on the door.
”Matthew? Are you there?”
”What? What’s wrong”
”Can you come here?”
”Why are you crying?”
”I just made the best stewed tomatoes.”
”Are you crying?”
”Because they are so good.”
This was a actual conversation over stewed tomatoes. Seriously, they are that good!
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
Bring a large pot of water to boil, plunge tomatoes in for 30 seconds. Remove, put immediately in a ice bath.
Peel and deseed the tomatoes. Disregard the skins and seeds.
Dice the tomatoes up.
In a large pot on medium heat, combine all ingredients.
Simmer for 20 minutes.
Then serve fresh or you can freeze them.

And now I will move from one side of the room…. to the other so you could see them in better light. Almost like magic.
Either way – enjoy!
