RECIPE BACKSTORY
Cathy Montagliani put this recipe in our elementary school cookbook years ago and it is the best! These jars of delicious stewed tomatoes will knock your socks off! They are that good! I am always so disappointed when they are all used up, but it's easy to make another batch. Great in spaghetti or chili or other tomato based sauces.
