Secrets of How to Stew Tomatoes

Stewing tomatoes simply means to slowly simmer tomatoes until their natural broth cooks down and the entire flavor becomes enriched.

My mom use to do it with canned tomatoes;
she'd simply pour a large can of seeded-peeled tomatoes (and their broth) into a heavy-bottomed pan; mashed them slightly with a potato masher or the back of a heavy spoon, add a pinch of salt, generously season with fresh cracked pepper, add a teaspoon of sugar (more or less to your own taste) and sometimes - just for a little zip - a dash of Worcestershire sauce.

Let this simmer uncovered on the stove top for an hour or two over a very low flame. Stirring occasionally until it attains a lovely, enriched flavor.

Someone here also suggested a can of the already "stewed" variety - in my experience, they're okay to cook with; but to eat them alone, I'd still bang them into a pan and do a simplified version of the above to add the peppery, sweetness of the home-stewed version.
