    Used different ingredients. Very easy recipe. Just what I had in mind. I'm still learning some of the basics, so this was very helpful. Homemade doesn't even compare to tinned. I also cut up some fresh okra and added it along with some fresh ground pepper. Delicious!  -  15 Sep 2008


    Good basic recipe. It needs sugar. Thanks Mary Ann.  -  15 Sep 2008


    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.  -  15 Sep 2008
