Shaker Tomato Orange Jam (1953)

  • 4 lbs ripe tomatoes, skinned and chopped
  • 16 cups sugar
  • 4 large oranges
  • 8 lemons
  • 3 sticks cinnamon
Scald tomatoes to remove skins, and chop fine. Add sugar, cinnamon, and the juice  and grated rind of the oranges and lemons.

Cook until it jells on a spoon. Skim, pour into jars, and seal.  This makes a most appetizing pink confection.
