Tomato Jam Posted by Marla
Yield: about 9 medium glass jars
3 cups prepared tomatoes (about
2 1/4 pounds ripe tomatoes 1 1/2 teaspoons grated lemon rind 1/4 cup lemon juice (2 lemons) 6 1/2 cups (2 pounds 14 ounces) granulated sugar 1 bottle pectin "Certo" (I think that's the 2 packages
that come in the box nowadays, check with Certo if unsure)
First prepare tomatoes. Scald, peel, chop the fully ripe tomatoes. Bring to a boil and simmer 10 minutes.
Measure 3 cups of that into a large saucepan. Add the lemon rind 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 constantly. 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.

3 cups sugar, divided 3 cups water 6 medium-sized ripe pears, peeled and cored (about 2 pounds) 1 medium lemon (thinly sliced -- about 1/2 cup) Roughly chop the pears into approximately 3/4-inch pieces. Combine 1-1/2 cups of the sugar and all the water in a large kettle or sauce pot. Cook rapidly for 2 minutes. Add pears and boil gently for 15 minutes. Add the remaining sugar and lemon, stirring until sugar dissolves. Cook rapidly until pears are transparent (about 25 minutes). Cover and let stand overnight or at least 12 hours in a cool place.
With a slotted spoon, remove pears from the cooking liquid (syrup). Pack pears into hot jars, leaving 1/4-inch head space. Bring the syrup to a boil and boil gently for 3 to 5 minutes, or longer if too thin. Pour the hot syrup over pears in the jars, maintaining 1/4-inch head space. Adjust caps on jars. Process 20 minutes in a boiling water bath. Makes about 5 half pints.

1 cup (or more) finely chopped sweet bell peppers 9 (or more) finely chopped hot peppers - the more colorful, the better 6 1/3 cups sugar 1 1/3 cups white vinegar 3 tablespoons lime juice 6 ounces liquid pectin
1. combine peppers, sugar, vinegar and bring to a boil 2. remove from heat and add pectin 3. return to a boil 4. remove from heat and add lime juice 5. process as desired

- using the food processor to chop the peppers makes preparation especially easy - DON'T FORGET TO WEAR RUBBER GLOVES WHEN HANDLING THE HOT PEPPERS
