What do you do when you don’t have enough tomatoes to can but too many tomatoes to use up before they go bad? You make a pan of stewed tomatoes. Then you use them with your favorite recipe that calls for a can of crushed or diced tomatoes. Think spaghetti sauce, chili, soup, cabbage rolls etc. Below is simple instructions of how to stew your tomatoes so you can cook them up immediately without wasting them.

Once the tomato is cool enough to touch,

remove and discard the core and the skin.

The skin should slip right off.
