If you love tomatoes, try making tomato pudding

Another delicious recipe I acquired after a News-Gazette ladies' luncheon last week is Alice Vaughan's tomato pudding recipe.

You probably have never heard of tomato pudding. I hadn't either, but I loved its complex tangy flavor, and was surprised by how easy this recipe seems. I have a feeling this is going to be a go-to dish for me, and I'm eager to try making it with whole-wheat bread, garden-fresh tomatoes (although that seems so far-off right now!) or perhaps topped with basil and feta cheese. It seems like it will be pretty versatile.

Tomato Pudding
1 quart tomatoes
1 cup brown sugar
eight slices dried bread
1/2 cup butter
pinch of salt
2 teaspoons finely diced onion

Pour melted butter over bread in large baking dish. Boil sugar, tomatoes and onions three minutes. Pour over. Bake for one hour at 375 degrees.
