  • Bring boiling-water canner, half full with water, to simmer. Wash jars and screw bands in hot soapy water; rinse with warm water. Pour boiling water over flat lids in saucepan off the heat. Let stand in hot water until ready to use. Drain well before filling.
  • Peel and chop tomatoes. Place in saucepan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Measure exactly 3 cups prepared fruit into 6- or 8-quart saucepot. Add lemon zest and juice.
  • Stir pectin into tomato mixture in saucepot. Add butter to reduce foaming, if desired. Bring mixture to full rolling boil (a boil that doesn't stop bubbling when stirred) on high heat, stirring constantly. Stir in sugar. Return to full rolling boil and boil exactly 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Skim off any foam with metal spoon.
  • Ladle immediately into prepared jars, filling to within 1/4 inch of tops. Wipe jar rims and threads. Cover with 2-piece lids. Screw bands tightly. Place jars on elevated rack in canner. Lower rack into canner. (Water must cover jars by 1 to 2 inches. Add boiling water, if necessary.) Cover; bring water to gentle boil. Process 10 minutes. Remove jars and place upright on a towel to cool completely. After jars cool, check seals by pressing middle of lid with finger. (If lid springs back, lid is not sealed and refrigeration is necessary.)

Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is a take on a very old-fashioned recipe for tomato preserve. This is a take on a very old-fashioned recipe for tomato preserve. The old way was to boil the sugar/fruit mixture until it was thick...long and arduous. I prefer the Sure-Jell method, with plenty of additional spice! It makes a GREAT ham glaze. It's also good on rye toast.
