Spicy Tomato Butter
10 lb. ripe red tomatoes (or 6 qt.) 6 c. white sugar 2 c. malt vinegar 1 tsp. cayenne 1 tsp. ground cloves 1 tsp. ground cinnamon 1 tsp. ground allspice 1 tsp. salt bottle of Certo
Peel tomatoes, chopping a large pieces. Cover with vinegar and let stand 8 hours or overnight. Drain well and add all other ingredients. Cook slowly in a crockpot/slow cooker until very thick. (If using a regular large pot on stovetop about 4 hours) Would be longer time if using crockpot. If not thickening sufficiently, add Certo and continue stirring and cooking an additional 10 minutes or so. Makes 3 quarts.
*A little goes a long way because it is quite spicy.
