Stewed Tomatoes

Our tomatoes are coming in slow this year but and the squirrels are a problem but we are getting some. I had a bowl full of tomatoes that I needed to use, not enough to make it worthwhile to set up the juicer to make sauce or soup.There were plenty to make a pot of stewed tomatoes.  I added a green pepper and a bit of onion and simmered them down for a half hour or so.  You can add green chilies and make your own Ro-tel style tomatoes – add to cheese sauce for a killer nacho dip.They are also great with elbow macaroni.I decided to can these in my pressure canner.  It was a good chance to really give that big burner on the new stove a good run.  These got processed at 10 lbs pressure for 25 minutes per the Presto guidelines.
