Stewed Tomatoes


A big batch of stewed tomatoes made from a big garden haul. I had enough tomatoes for about 10 pints--it was two big colanders full. I used two bags of Cajun-style mirepoix, which got sauteed in olive oil. I peeled and quartered my tomatoes, then added them to my veggies to stew with two teaspoons each of salt and sugar.

Then I canned them, which made me very proud. They are the best soup base ever.

Great job! I wish I could can. Being a farm gal, I should be able to, but it is a technique I never picked up.

I didn't know you were a canner! Or maybe you're an occasional canner when there's a big garden haul ;) Nothing like home-canned tomatoes for soup base, I agree.
