Awesome!, Member kristinekania

Very easy, EXTREMELY tasty results; flavor was comparable to Del Monte's stewed tomatoes. I added a fresh jalepeno pepper for some kick, and, because I started this at noon and didn't want to eat dinner at 8 pm, I cranked the crock pot up to HIGH for 4 hours, then LOW for 2 hours. I had never used the boiling water/ice water method of peeling tomatoes before; it worked like magic. Doubled the recipe and froze the leftovers.
