My Mom used to put sugar, butter and bread in the tomatoes. The bread absorbed the tomato juice and the butter and sugar made a lovely gloss on the bread. You let it sit to firm up a bit and then serve. She called this stewed tomatoes. Delicious.

This is not really stewed tomatoes. Stewed tomatoes are made with sugar, peppers, and onions. This is just "canned tomatoes" at home.

The tomatoes need only 30 seconds in the hot water and peeling them is much easier if you cut a little X on the bottom before putting them in the hot water so that you can peel them whole if you want. A little sugar should definately be added.
