(I've never tried this one, but thought it sounded interesting)
1 1/2 quarts small tomatoes-green, yellow, or red (about 2 lbs)
1 tbsp Ball mixed pickling spices
1 (1/2 inch) piece fresh ginger
4 cups sugar
1 cup thinly sliced and seeded lemon (about 2 medium)
3/4 cup water
1. Wash and peel tomatoes; drain.
2. Tie spices and fresh ginger in a spice bag. Combine spice bag, sugar, lemon, and water in a large sauce pot. Simmer 15 minutes.
3. Add tomatoes; cook gently until they become transparent, stirring frequently to prevent sticking. Remove from heat.
4. Cover and let stand 12-18 hours in a cool place. Remove spice bag. Remove tomatoes and lemon from syrup.
5. Boil syrup for 3 minutes or long to thicken. Return tomatoes and lemon to syrup; boil 1 minute. Remove from heat.
6. Skim foam if necessary. Ladle hot preserves into hot prepared jars; leaving 1/4 inch head space. Adjust 2 piece caps. Process 20 minutes in a boiling water canner.
Yield: about 6 half pints

Re: Tomato Preserves
OMG!! I've been looking for a recipe for tomato preserves for years,, literally like 13 yrs lol. I've had them on homemade biscuits at an Inn in a small Ohio town close to where I used to live. They are so so good, you'd never know that it was made from tomatoes. To me that tasted somewhat 'strawberryish'. Thankyou for posting it
