Yankee Doodle Candy?

  July is tomato month in most parts of the country. Celebrate on the 4th or anytime during this patriotic month with a classic stewed red tomato dish that has added tomato sweetness like candy. Stewed tomatoes can be served over pasta, used for a bruschetta, or just served as a side to meat, poultry or fish. In a large saucepan with Teflon™ nonstick coating, simmer a 28-ounce can of whole tomatoes with 1 stick of butter and a cup of sugar. Cook 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add some chopped fresh sweet basil and if you like, some sweet corn kernels.
