I'm from Northern Maine and pickling and canning is a part of life here. Stewed tom. is something my mother and i done every year. So heres my moms way of making stewed tom.
4 Quarts of chopped,peeled and cored tom.
1 Cup of celery
1/2 Cup chopped onions
1/4 Cup Greenpepper
1TBLE spoon sugar
2 Teaspoon salt
combine all vegetables into a sauce pan cover and cook about 10 min. carefully ladle veggies into hot jars place lid on finger tight and then process for 15 min in pint jars and 20 min in quart jars. At 10lbs of pressure in a steam pressure canner.
This will be the best stewed tomatos you have ever eaten.
