Time for a side dish recipe from, hopefully, what you have in your pantry. This was an experiment on my part, and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised.
This freezes nicely in portioned containers. I made a big batch to fill my crockpot about half full. I used all those tomatoes that came in at the same time at the end of last year’s gardening season! I believe canned diced tomatoes would do nicely before this year’s crop comes in.
Try it and let us know what you think!
8 Cups fresh tomatoes cut into big chunks (or 4 15-oz cans of diced tomatoes)
1 Cup diced Green Pepper
1 Cup diced Celery
1 Cup diced Onion
1 Clove minced Garlic
3 Dashes Hot Sauce
Salt to taste
1 Teaspoon dried Thyme (or 1 Tablespoon fresh)
Put all ingredients into crockpot
Stir to Mix
Cook on low for 4 hours
