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
  • oil


Step 1

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).

Step 2

Simmer over medium heat stirring often to prevent sticking.

Step 3

Cook until the liquid is reduced and the tomatoes mixture is slightly thickened.
