Now I have to say the recipe I found on "ShowFood Chef" has got me excited about the prospect of spring tomatoes and the amazing jam that she created.

  • Bring to a boil on Med., continue to stir, for several minutes.

  • Fill sterilized jars, leaving 1/2 inch headspace for food expansion. Seal immediately, and hot water bath for 10 minutes. Remove, carefully, and leave for 12-24 hours without moving. Label and store in a cool, dry place.
