How to make it
- Wash tomatoes; remove stems & crush. Combine all ingredients, except spices & vinegar, in a preserving kettle. Cook over high heat to boiling, adjust heat to medium. Cook for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Strain off 1 quart surplus liquid - use for soup. Tie spices in a bag. Add to tomato mixture. Cook until thick, stirring frequently to prevent sticking. Add vinegar; cook until right consistency, or until all excess liquid has disappeared
- Remove spice bag.
- Pour into sterilized jars & seal.
- NOTE: These directions are exactly as my grandmother wrote them down. This stuff really is the best!

Got my five! I make my own condiments for the most part, and this will be a lovely addition! Technique is very similar to the ketchup I make. Thank you so much for the generous post!shine in Rainier loved it
