When I was a kid my mom cooked stewed tomatoes and I loved it. She never had the recipe written down. So, when I decided that I would try to make stewed tomatoes I had to do some “trial and error” to develop a recipe similar to the one she made. Here is my delicious version of stewed tomatoes. I hope you like it too.

1
Stir together tomatoes, basil, butter, sugar, and salt. Mix well.

3
Add tomato mixture to the pot and heat over medium high heat. Bring to a simmer and cook for 15 minutes.
