- First prepare tomatoes. Scald, peel, chop the fully ripe tomatoes.
Bring to a boil and simmer 10 minutes.

and juice to the tomatoes. Add the exact measure of sugar and mix
well. Bring to a full rolling boil and boil hard for 1 minute, stirring
- Remove from heat and add pectin. Skim off foam with
metal spoon. Then stir and skim for 5 minutes to cool slightly and
prevent floating "fruit."
- Ladle into glass jars and you can use 1/8 inch of melted paraffin
on top or use sealing lids.
