Yellow Tomato Preserves

This is a recipe past down through my DH family...about 15 years ago when Tony's Aunt Elizabeth shared this recipe I really was not sure if it would be worth the time. To my surprise it is very delish.

Yellow Tomato Preserves

3 cups of yellow tomatoes (chopped)
4 cups of sugar
2 tablespoons of lemon juice

Mix the 3 ingredients together in a heavy saucepan.
Cook over medium heat....bring to a boil and cook approx. 35-45 min. This is always the hardest part for me...sometimes it needs to cook a little longer.To check if it is the right consistency spoon 2 tablespoons into a saucer and place in freezer...continue doing so until it looks right for you.

Pour into jars.... your finished .... no processing time.
It taste good on biscuits and toast. If anyone has made this before...please share if there are other ways to incorporate it in other recipes.

Have A Great Day!

It does look good though.

If I bring some hot biscuits can I come over and have a taste test and a nice visit? I would love to try this. Usually we grow tomatoes every summer but we didn't this year. I miss having them. What you made looks so amazing and delicious. Thank you for the lovely post!
