Easy Freezer-Ready Homemade Stewed Tomatoes

35 mins (prep 10, cooking 25)
10 ingredients
5 servings
Fresh peeled tomatoes may be used in place of canned, just slightly blanch in boiling water firstly for a couple minutes then peel and chop before using in this recipe, this is great to have handy in the freezer ready to use in any recipe, and much better than the canned stuff. This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled. Great to use in stews, casseroles, sauces or any recipe calling for stewed tomatoes, this is even good added to homemade pasta sauce. This is just a basic recipe, to this I like to add in a couple tablespoons tomato paste and a few drops of Tabasco sauce, just to kick it up a bit, all ingredient amounts may be adjusted to suit taste.
