"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Dice the onion. Melt butter in large pot or Dutch oven. Throw in the onion and cook until translucent.
Dump in the diced tomatoes and stir to combine. Add the tomato juice.
Add sugar; trust me: you need this much to combat the acidity of the tomatoes.
