Tuesday's Cupful: Stewed Tomatoes

A flavorful way to store ‘em up for winter
There’s nothing like fresh and ripe tomatoes, but stewed tomatoes can serve any family well since the process helps preserve and lengthen the shelf-life of regular tomatoes. If you’re summer garden provides an extra abundance of these red beauties, try stewing them for later use during the colder fall and winter months. Making homemade stewed tomatoes allows cooks to season batches to their specific liking or taste. We suggest adding fresh herbs and seasonings, such as chopped basil, minced garlic, or dried oregano. Also look for canned varieties at most major supermarkets.
