Tomato Pudding

Susan Feliciano


This may sound strange, but it's really very good. My aunt used to serve it at Christmas, and my mother would make it about every couple of weeks because it was one of the few vegetables us kids would eat. My father loved it; I guess his mother used to make it for him. When I fix it again I'll post a picture.
