Amish Tomato Gravy from The Best of Amish Cooking Cook Book

1 Quart Canned Peeled & Chopped Tomatoes
3 TBS Flour
2 to 3 TBS Water
4 TBS Brown Sugar
Heat tomatoes to the boiling point. Meanwhile stir together the flour & water until smooth. Add stirring to the boiling tomatoes along with the brown sugar. Cook until thick. Serve over Mac & Cheese or Fried Potatoes. I never made this as I do not like my tomatoes sweet but I know that a lot of you do! If I were making this I would add a tablespoon or 2 of butter & a dash of salt along with parsley but the above is the original recipe. I would consider this stewed tomatoes & not a tomato gravy but among the Amish this is a Tomato Gravy.
