Smothered Fresh Tomatoes
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 saute 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.
