During summer we had an abundance of fresh tomatoes. Being raised on a truck farm we had the best vegetables and Mom knew exactly how to make a dish that complimented her entree and make her 9 children happy to eat and enjoy dinner.
- 10 to 12 fresh tomatoes cut in pieces
- 1 small yellow onions
- 1 tsp sugar
- 1 tsp salt (or more)
- 1/4 tsp red pepper/cayenne
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
In a 5 quart heavy bottom pot add 2 to 3 tablespoons of oil and sauté the sliced onion until wilted. Add the chopped tomatoes (Mom rarely peeled or skinned the tomatoes).
Simmer over medium heat stirring often to prevent sticking.
Cook until the liquid is reduced and the tomatoes mixture is slightly thickened.
