Stewed Tomatoes are one of our family favorites. We use tomatoes fresh from the garden in the summer. In the winter, we open a quart of home-canned cut-up tomatoes. It is far better than any stewed tomatoes you find at the grocery store. This homemade stewed tomatoes recipe is quick and easy to make.
Did You Know? Tomatoes are native to South America. They were discovered in the 1600s and brought back to Europe. Why, that means before the 1600s, there was no tomato-based pizza or spaghetti sauce in Italy.
