You asked for it. I found this "Old Recipe" in my stash of "Old Recipes".
My Grandma Made all (3) Of these. "Her's was Just called stewed tomatoes". I think She used the "2nd recipe" more often after she No longer Canned, or grew a garden.

Ifo Only:
I also Searched and found this recipe or Similar ones have many different Versions and Names.

This is the One(#2) That I recall as a Kid in the early 50's, I got all of these from my recipe Collection of past Family favorites.
