  • 1 Yellow onion; peeled, sliced
  • 6 Very ripe large tomatoes;

I think of doing this very seldom. When I was a child my mother used to
heat up canned tomatoes with some old bread cubes. It was not my favorite.
However, fresh stewed tomatoes are something else. Mr. Jefferson thought of
many ways to serve this delight, and I think he certainly would have
enjoyed this version. We know that he kept a large herb garden going all of
the time, so the herbs would have found their way into his beloved
tomatoes. He also loved olive oil and tried to grow olives at Monticello.

In a heavy saucepan melt the butter and saut”š the onion until clear. Add
the remaining ingredients and simmer until the tomatoes are very tender, or
to your liking.
